John Lautner is by far one of my favorite architects. This house titled Chemosphere was built in 1960 and is now owned by Benedikt and Angelika Taschen. The is perched high above the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and has gorgeous open views. To get to the house, you take a funicular (rail-car) up the hill from 100 feet below the house.
As with John Lautner’s other works, my main interest in this home is of course the use of wood, but also the asymmetrical structure.
