a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!


Lovell Beach House
September 5

Constructed in 1926, the Lovell Beach House was perhaps the first pure International Style house built in America. Designed by Rudolf Schindler for the same progressive physician who later commissioned Richard Neutra to design his well known Los Angeles home, the Lovell Beach House consists of a series of five concrete frames that form the main structure. The rhythm of these planes provides a striking composition of forms, and elegantly elevates the main living spaces above the surrounding ground level for a panorama of the ocean beyond.
