This is our first blog post, so we wanted to give you something special; The Wolff Residence by John Lautner — which coincidentally just came on the market — certainly fits the bill.  
 
A seminal work of the Organic Architecture movement, the Wolff Residence epitomizes a design aesthetic very near and dear to the heart of Figure 8.  The movement’s philosophy views both a structure’s inhabitants and their surrounding environment as a single entity whose needs and quality of life are intertwined and mangnified by their coexistence.  In the case of the Wolff Residence, the result is a home that is elegant, imaginitve, and truly unique. As such, we’re excited to showcase this spectacular example of what Organic Architecture can achieve in urban environments which, after all, is what LA living is all about!
 
Built in 1961 as a tribute to his mentor, Frank Lloyd Wright, this historically important multi-level residence demonstrates Lautner’s ability to seamlessly integrate the design of man-made structures into their surrounding landscape.  With an eye to preserve the integrity of it’s hillside habitat, the house achieves an extraordinary unity of engineering and environment that make it easy to see why it’s one of the most well-regarded Lautner designs of his career and a true masterwork of Architectural Modernism.  The State of California seems to agree: in 1972 the 8530 Hedges Place main residence became one of the first private homes in Los Angeles to be listed as a California State Monument…yeah, we thought that was pretty cool too.

The stone walls, clean lines, and copper lined roof combine to form a minimalist design tha look inconspicously elegant from the street.  The residence, while only minutes away from Sunset Blvd, is nonetheless beautifully situated on one of the Hollywood Hills’ most private streets.

The entry way literally walks the line between nature and structure, with a panoramic view of the city that blends effortlessly into the Home’s lush landscaping.  A Giant Eucalyptus tree weaves through the center of the property as a visual anchor that connects the design of the house to it’s surrounding natural environment.
