Widely considered the greatest architectural photographer of our time, Julius Shulman spent the past 59 years living in this Raphael Soriano masterpiece until his death this past summer. This studio and residence tucked away in a secluded spot in the Hollywood Hills just hit the market this week and local architecture fantatics having been buzzing with the opportunity to check it out in person.

This mid-century is the only unaltered steel frame house by Soriano and has thus been deemed a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural monument. The interior contains extensive wooden built-ins and cabinetry, there are koi ponds surrounding the backyard studio, the living room has a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and the kitchen has built-in bench seating.

Clearly this is an architectural landmark fit for an architectural icon. Hopefully the new owner will respect history and maintain the architctectural integrity of the home with some tasteful updates.

    If we’re really lucky, the new owners will truly respect history and maintain the architectural integrity of the home by not adding any “tasteful updates”. Preservation, not renovation, is what an architectural landmark requires.
