Architect Couple’s L.A. Courtyard House Comes With a Scalloped, Round Kitchen Island and Le Corbusier Lighting

By Pauline O’Connor

Architects love to live and build in Silver Lake — everybody from John Lautner and Richard Neutra in the ’30s and ’40s to, decades later, Michael Rotondi and Barbara Bestor, have designed homes for themselves in the neighborhood’s hills.

More recently, Annie Ritz and Daniel Rabin, XTEN Architecture and Bestor alums who founded their own firm, And And And Studio, in 2017, have worked on three different living spaces for themselves in Silver Lake. The husband-and-wife duo’s latest and most extensive personal project, 1655 North Benton Way, is now on the market half a mile south of the Silver Lake Reservoir.

When the couple acquired the property in 2017, it contained a generic 1950s stucco box measuring just over 1,300 square feet. This was taken down to the studs and transformed into a board-and-batten-clad structure that wraps around its front courtyard in an L shape, with the longer section holding the bedrooms and bathrooms and the shorter section containing the kitchen, dining, and living areas. Oversize glass sliders connect the house with its courtyard and rear swimming pool while keeping the rooms suffused with natural sunlight.

Virtual Book Launch | ‘Regarding Paul R. Williams: A Photographer’s View’ by Janna Ireland

Photographer, Janna Ireland captures the work and legacy of Paul R. Williams in her latest publication

Show your support this Sunday, September 13th for a virtual book launch of Janna Ireland‘s latest publication, Regarding Paul R. Williams: A Photographer’s View. Over the past 5 years, Janna has made it her mission to document and archive the works of the iconic Angeleno architect. With a body of work spanning decades, Janna researched thoroughly and tracked down these buildings through word of mouth and with help from the likes of fellow LA architect, Barbara Bestor.

Join Barbara and Janna in a discussion about the life and work of Paul R. Williams as well as what his designs represent today. Both Ireland and Bestor want to make it their mission that Williams’ work is not forgotten in the history of Modernism. They will discuss the intersections of art, design, race, and how these play in the photography of Janna Ireland. Ireland was recently quoted in the LA Times, “I’m interested in stories about black people, and I’m interested in stories about Los Angeles. There’s an intersection there.” With deep black and white compositions making up the collection in this book, there is a common thread of stories running through them, that of the larger than life legacy of Paul R. Williams who still inspires young artists and inspires the cultural landscape of Los Angeles.

The event is free to the public and requires a reservation. Hosted by Angel City Press, the event starts at 4pm, Sunday September 13th.
