Architecture Tour in LA - HOUSE IV

This is the fourth and final installment about new architecture on an AIA-sponsored tour in Los Angeles.

Reminiscent of the Case Study houses.

This review of four recent examples of modern architecture has been all about the details. The Nightingale Drive residence, high above Sunset, may have some of the best. Every turn of a corner or intersection of materials has been meticulously designed. This attention to detail almost seems Japanese in character. However, this house is thoroughly in the Neutra/Eames/Koenig tradition. This means it is unmistakably American and unmistakably L.A. It was designed by Studio Pali Fekete Architects.
