Los Angeles (City), CA 90069
According to architectural historian David Gebhard: "The high point of architecture and design in the L.A. area occurred in 1939 & 1940".Noted sculptor Ada Mae Sharpless, famous for her Art Deco "Lady of the Lake" in Echo Park, shared in this efflorescent time artistically specifying a high-ceilinged loft program and high-style Moderne detailing for her studio/residence overlooking the City. Today, with its volumes, this compact residence lives large. Much like the Cedric Gibbons house in Santa Monica Canyon, the house presents a nearly blank facade to the street. Upon entry one sees the 2-story living room from behind the sleeping loft. Drama is enhanced by the compression of the overhead loft and expansion of the living room space as one enters. Kitchen, dining area, office & media room are arranged in an open plan extending out to terrace, pool, & sweeping city & ocean vistas. Additionally incorporated are the master suite & office, guest bath & a direct entry 2-car garage.
