Alden Schwimmer Residence by John Lautner in Beverly Hills
Boy, oh boy. Talk about a phenomenal use of a parcel of land. Maybe the best way to begin appreciating the Alden Schwimmer Residence by John Lautner is to jump to the bottom of this post and check out the satellite view of the property. Lautner, who was commissioned to build a “horizontal castle”, designed this home of concrete, stone and wood in such a way that it wraps snugly around the nose of this hill giving it 180-degree views of everything from Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean. As with the Reiner Residence (see post from Aug 11), Lautner once again employs a cantilevered design for the home’s long, curved driveway, as well as its swimming pool, which hovers effortlessly above Benedict Canyon.
