|location||California, Los Angeles|
High above the Hollywood hills, just northwest of downtown Los Angeles, a concrete arch floats off the ground. It was designed in the early '60's by John Lautner, one of the cities most progressive and futuristic architects. Beneath the arch, the space splits into two parts, with an outdoor spiral staircase leading from Mulholland Drive down into the living area. Glass walls close in both sides providing a view through the house and out over the Los Angeles basin.
