John Lautner : The Goldstein Residence

Posted by Charles

A profile of the incredible Goldstein Residence by architect John Lautner, this makes me want to work a little bit harder today. I’ve been looking to move up to LA in the coming months, maybe I’ll luck out and this guy will need someone to watch his house for a few months.

so does the girl come with the house?….nm

Amazing design. I wish I could have a house with that many nooks and crannies, each purposefully built and aesthetically pleasing. Amazing vista overlooking the city. Would be a sweet place to crash for a week.

@Greg H: Ha, ha, ha – I opened the comments to write exactly, precisely what you wrote. I am still laughing.

To be serious for a moment, I have actually had the privilege of living in the same sort of style of house here in Switzerland, extreme contemporary dating from the ’60s. The issue is that contemporary houses from that era are like classic cars from the 60s and 70s. You need a large annual and initial budget (beyond the purchase price) for the constant upkeep and restoration. They seem nice from afar, but they are actually old and dark in the detail. I honestly today prefer the airy, light modern designs and materials from today.

That’s THE “NBA Superfan”! His name is James Goldstein and he’s a multi-millionaire (thought to be from a successful real estate career) and he attends over a hundred NBA games per season, mainly Lakers and Clippers games. I see him courtside via TV on what seems like a regular basis.

his personal style seems to be at extreme odds with his personal dwelling…
amazing pad though, would be crazy to get high on coke and go fuck models there.

The house is gorgeous! But what I’m really curious about is the music in the video… anyone know what tracks they are using?
