Just listed: 2BR, 2BA. Nice street. Great views. $2.5 million OBO. THE price would be crazy if the property in question wasn't Case Study House No. 21, the late Pierre Koenig's 1958 landmark in the hills of West Hollywood. Owner Mark Haddawy has announced that he's putting the house up for auction -- and all of its period furnishings are going with it. "I never thought I'd sell it," says Haddawy, co-owner of the vintage clothing store Resurrection.

"NIGHT STALKER," which premieres tonight on ABC, is the slightly retitled remake of the 1970s ABC series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker," featuring the great Darren McGavin as a crime reporter nosing about in the world of vampires and other weird beasties. McGavin has been digitally inserted into a scene in tonight's episode and, although there are a few decent spook-show thrills, nothing else here is as scary as that.

The minute Kathy Guild walked into the Los Feliz house she now owns, she told her real estate agent, "I'll take it." She had just spent a year searching for a pedigreed house that perfectly typified its architectural style and had seen firsthand all too many bastardized L.A. gems. So discovering this mid-century J.R. Davidson home in near-mint condition was an unexpected coup. "Most of these houses had been molested by remodels in the '70s," she says.

A Midcentury Modern home above the Sunset Strip in Hollywood Hills stands in tribute to its designer, Los Angeles architect Bernard Zimmerman, and the man for whom it was built, architectural photographer Marvin Rand. Zimmerman, who helped found the architecture department at Cal Poly Pomona, also co-founded the Los Angeles Institute of Architecture and Design and helped create the Architecture and Design Museum. Rand, perhaps best known for his eye-catching images of the circular Capitol Records building in Hollywood and the Hunt House in Malibu, chronicled more than five decades of architectural history in Los Angeles.

Julius Shulman received his first Eastman Kodak Brownie as a gift while in high school. Brownie in hand, he proceeded to prodigiously photograph the bridges, streets and buildings of Los Angeles, as well as the local mountains he loved to hike, recalls Judy McKee, the daughter of the iconic photographer, who died two years ago at age 98. "My dad never missed an opportunity to take a photograph. We'd be driving along and he'd suddenly see something: 'Oh, look at that!' Then he'd stop the car, grab his camera, sometimes even climb up on the hood.

The private owner of a Laurel Canyon home designed by Austrian architect Rudolf Schindler has donated the property to the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, the center announced today. The Modernist home is the third Schindler residence to come under the stewardship of the nonprofit MAK Center, which owns the mid-Wilshire Mackey Apartment House (1939) and has its headquarters in Schindler House (1921-22), the late architect's own residence on Kings Road in West Hollywood.

WHEN actress Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott bought a Fallbrook bed-and-breakfast for their new reality TV show, "Tori & Dean: Inn Love," the design brief was simple. "No floral sofas and no doilies," says Mike Valles, co-founder of Interior Illusions, the West Hollywood store that outfitted the newly christened Chateau La Rue (named for Spelling's pug) in three weeks. "Tori wanted Hollywood Regency glam." The red lounge, shown above, got a big bang for a few bucks.

Xavier Veilhan, the Paris-based artist who last year turned Richard Neutra's VDL House in Silver Lake into a startling temporary gallery and later transformed Pierre Koenig's Case Study House No. 21 into a ghostly, smoke-filled, one-night-only installation, took over John Lautner's Sheats-Goldstein residence Wednesday evening for the third installment of his “Architectones” series in L.A. Veilhan showed four works, the centerpiece of which was...
October 9, 1994 | Steve Proffitt, Steve Proffitt is a producer for Fox News and a contributor to National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" and "Morning Edition." He spoke with Julius Shulman at the photographer's home in the Hollywood Hills
In 1960, Julius Shulman took a photograph that, perhaps more than any other single image, conveys the style, grace and allure of postwar Los Angeles. Inside a steel-topped glass box balanced lightly on a hilltop, two young women in white cotton chat, while the City of Angels sparkles below. It is a picture both nostalgic and modern, the work of a self-taught photographer who truly invented himself.
