Inspired by the modern work of architect Paul R. Williams, architectural designer Darrick F. Martin spent ten years thoughtfully updating the Kranse Residence above the Sunset Strip.
Post-war U.S.C. architect Nisan Yale Matlin originally designed the home. During his career, he worked for A.Quincy Jones & Emmons Architects (known for the Eichler homes of the 1960s.)
Matlin brought the indoor/outdoor lifestyle to his homes with usable atriums, high ceilings, post-and-beam construction, walls of glass, and clerestory windows. Inside and out, Martin maintains the spirit of Matlin’s work.
Measuring just under 1,500 square feet, the home features a galley-style kitchen that flows to an L-shaped open living and dining area anchored by a fireplace.
The home is currently used as a one-bedroom with an office/media room. The primary bedroom and bath have floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors leading to an outdoor entertainment pavilion where you can relax on a chaise lounge leisurely flipping through the latest issue of Dwell magazine. Listed by Christopher Pomeroy and Crosby Doe, the home seeks $2,375,000.
