Quincy Jones’s Los Angeles home and studio is for rent

The modernist Los Angeles duplex home of architects Quincy Jones and Ruth Schneider is for rent in Lauren Canyon.

The A. Quincy Jones House & Studio was built in 1938 by the newlywed couple to tread lightly on its twin hillside plots, covered in native scrub. Half of the 2,156 sq ft complex was used as the couple’s home, while the other would become Jones’s first architecture studio.

Private members club Spring Place has renovated both of the midcentury modern units, which are connected by a walkway. They can now be rented together or separately for $10,000-$20,000 per month via Alana Mesica, James Harris, and David Parnes of The Agency. Each retains original midcentury features. These include box-beamed ceilings, exposed steel beams, full-height brick fireplaces and period cabinetry and wood panelling.

The building’s sloping floor-to-ceiling glass walls look onto the rocky hillside at the rear and out over the city at the front, and mimic the topography of the canyon’s landscape. The Los Angeles property’s timber skin has also been stained green to blend into the hillside’s vegetation, minimising its visual impact.
