De Jonghe Residence / Frank Lloyd Wright Jr


A home by Lloyd Wright — Frank Lloyd Wright Jr, that is — has gone on the market in Los Angeles, and it’s quite the looker. Built in 1949 for actor Daniel De Jonghe and enhanced by John Powell, the 195 square metre two bedroom perches on a ridge top in the Hollywood Hills with panoramic views of down town and features a long, low profile and is constructed out of glass, stone, concrete and wood.

The interior spaces flow both inward and outward, enhancing the connection to the outdoors by way of decking and expansive windows, while geometric shapes figure throughout the home, as in the triangular island in the kitchen and an overhang lining the perimeter of the sitting room. The property includes two large stone fireplaces and a private office. Located at 9028 Crescent Drive, it’s asking $2,495,000 — via Curbed
