Handsome Midcentury by Rex Lotery Hits the Market

Rex Lotery departs from his sleek and sprawling one-story Trousdale Estate designs to build the “more explicitly vertical” Spanner Residence in Woodland Hills.

Lotery’s versatility as an architect is clear in this structure, “illustrating an interpretation of the Mid-Century Modernism that evokes the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and R. M. Schindler” writes LA Conservancy. Standing curbside you expect the architect’s solution to building a 2-story residence on a challenging hillside to be the typical division between ground-floor public spaces and walled-off bedrooms upstairs.

Instead, he designed the interior for psychologist Marvin Spanner and his family as a series of interlocking volumes and spaces on multiple levels unfolding as one progresses from one room to the next. With high clerestories and mitered corner windows  sunlight gently flows and diffuses over the clearly and functionally defined spaces.

An indoor/outdoor flow is encouraged by patios, a pool, and plantings expanding the living space outside. Features include a 2-car garage with shop, dark room and wine cellar, a ground-floor library with full bath, and a large studio-office.

The residence also comes with a vacant lot that makes for a spectacular play yard or the perfect area for exercising your green thumb.
