Spectacular Mansion For Today’s Young Masters of The Universe, $28M

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 19:15:00 +0000

Photo credit  Photography Courtesy of Simon Berlyn/Sotheby's International Real Estate Where: 8854 Thrasher Avenue, Hollywood HillsAsking: $28,000,000What: A 5-bed, 7-bath, 3-half bath, 4-car garage house high up in the legendary Bird Streets– although calling this a “house” is an understatement. Designed by Mattia Biagi of Studio Dardo, this is a tour-de-force of luxurious and classically Los Angeles design, somehow managing to be supremely tasteful and visually seductive, with the best electronics, audio systems and motorized Fleetwood walls of glass. A completely modern setting, in which Biagi has interwoven a few allusions to the past.Dubbed “The Cork House” in homage to the cork tree it was built around.Native to the Mediterranean, cork are an ancient variety of coastal oak and can live to be hundreds of years old, but historic allusions aside, this house is ready to party now. The swimming pool is set out over the view; the glass floor provides both a bottom’s-up view of swimmers and a skylit lower level.What We Love: Most of the house and outdoor spaces are paved with breccia, a composite volcanic stone quarried in Italy. Think polished terrazzo, created before the dinosaurs. With other floors in wide plank walnut, the flooring choices look back to grand Italian villas, plus Biaggi has furnished the house with a selection of furniture by 20th Century Italian masters (below) like Gio Ponti and Cini Boeri.The master bedroom suite is larger than most single-famly dwellings, with a seductive white marble wet room.More: Have a look at the listing for additional details and images.

Form & Function: New Ideas for Common Materials

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 22:44:08 +0000

One of the reasons we love architects is that they see what mere mortals don't (or can't). Case in point: What might look like a pile of common asphalt shingles to us was a source of inspiration for Los Angeles architect Edward Ogosta of Edward Ogosta Architecture.

Ogosta, whose award-winning firm is known for creating modern homes and creative commercial projects, chose Malarkey asphalt roofing shingles for the exterior siding as well as the roof of a recent project. "Asphalt shingles have long been used in residential architecture on the roof, so we wanted to use this humble material in a new and innovative way," the architect says. "By fastening the material to the exterior wall as well as the roof, we wrapped the house in the shingles to create a continuous waterproof skin."

The result is something that's surprising, fresh and utterly new—words that aren't often applied to this particular building material.

True Blue - Jasper Johns At The Broad

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 18:40:55 +0000

Photo credit  Installation photos by Pablo Enriquez If there was ever a reason to design a trip to Los Angeles between now and mid-May, the new exhibition at the Broad Museum, “Something Resembling Truth”, a retrospective of Jasper John’s work, presented in collaboration with The Royal Academy, London, would be it. This is made even more urgent given the fact that this is the show’s only U.S. stop. The exhibition title is taken from a 2006 interview in which Johns said, “Yet, one hopes for something resembling truth, some sense of life, even of grace, to flicker, at least, in the work.”  Here hope burns bright.  Whether you’re just getting acquainted with John’s work or are a long-time fan, this show, the first full survey in more than a half century, which includes more than 120 pieces from public and private collections is, as Broad director Joanne Heyler, the host co-curator of the show alongside Associate Curator Ed Schad, accurately summed up, “transcendent”. Even a quick turn through the galleries, a glimpse of which is captured here, is enough to understand Johns influence on art.  Tracing the evolution of the artist’s wide-ranging practice through a series of thematic chapters, the show stretches across the full range of Johns’ materials, motifs and techniques—including his unique use of encaustic (heated beeswax) and found-material collage in paintings—and the innovations he has achieved in sculpture and the graphic arts by expanding the possibilities of traditional media.Organized thematically, early and late works are grouped together showing the artist’s evolution through their juxtaposition. The American flag paintings are huddled in the first room, starting the show off with a loud bang and it only gathers momentum from there: here, are all the typography works; there, the found materials collages; another space holds the targets. “In the Studio”, “Fragments and Faces”, “Seasons and Cycles”, “Time and Transience” are some of the other themes that cleverly thread together John's long-ranging, inventive, revolutionary and influential career which impacted such disparate artists as Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha, John Baldessari and Sherrie Levine, among others.Tickets are $25 for adults, free for children 17 and under, and will include same-day general admission for The Broad’s third floor galleries. In celebration of this rare opportunity to consider Johns’ entire career in depth, The Broad will host free First Thursdays with free standby admission to the special exhibition from 4-7 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month during the exhibition’s run (so, for the calendar-challenged, that would be Mar. 1, Apr. 5 and May 3, 2018). The Broad will also be launching a diverse slate of public programming to be presented in conjunction with the show. Jasper Johns, “Something Resembling Truth, Feb 10 – May 13, 2018 at The Broad.

Without Equal - The La Peer Hotel

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 18:09:06 +0000

Photo credit  Laure Joliet for La Peer Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel West Hollywood’s La Cienega Design Quarter has long been lacking a stunning hotel within a comfortable walking distance of its amazing boutiques, chic restaurants, and stunning showrooms. That has been remedied by the opening of La Peer Hotel.The boutique Kimpton hotel, showcasing interior designer Gulla Jónsdóttir's impeccable work and Chef Casey Lane's equally elegant food and beverage offerings, reflects the neighborhood’s emphasis on design, art, and style. The intimate 105-room hotel features compelling indoor and outdoor public spaces, set off by art created by Jónsdóttir’s vast network of talented colleagues. Witness the back garden with its installation by RETNA in collaboration with fellow artist Guerin Swing, Khori Maki’s elevator design. Topping it all off? A 4,000-square-foot private rooftop deck. Handcrafted art pieces and custom designs are found throughout the hotel, contributing to the overall creative energy. (Jónsdóttir’s studio gallery, Atelier Gulla Jónsdóttir, on the hotel’s first floor, offers guests an opportunity to incorporate some of hotel’s artwork and furniture in the own homes). Open bathrooms with freestanding tubs and a palette of softs grays and beiges pull the sensual vibe through the guestrooms.  Jónsdóttir’s interiors, all curving, anthropomorphic shapes, plush sofas with wide, inviting arms, comfy pillows and sumptuous textures — leather cocoon walls, bronze columns, curved brass ceiling details and soaring light sources — in neutral grey-tinged tones, finds its gastronomical partners in Lane’s eaterie, Viale dei Romani. The Mediterranean cuisine, which freely mixes Greek, North African, Southern French and Italian influences is equally earthy and sexy. A chicken and clementine tagine, wood-roasted romanesco with ‘nduja, tagilatelle with rabbit and sweetbreads and taramasalata are among the more unexpected offerings on the mostly seafood-driven menu.  La Peer Hotel, 627 N La Peer Dr, West Hollywood, CA 90069, 855.239-4324.
