Pierre Koenig’s Scott House In Tujunga

10300 Haines Canyon Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 91042

2 BR, 2 BA
$585,000

The Scott House, designed by Pierre Koenig in 1956, is an example of his early work in steel and glass and is one of only five projects predating his Case Study work. This residence is a precursor to the Bailey House (Case Study House #21) built in 1958 and to Koenig’s most well-known work, the Stahl House (Case Study House #22), which was built in 1960. The Scott House is virtually unaltered, and as with all Koenig’s designs, it looks strikingly modern over 50 years later.

The Scott House was designed as a model for postwar suburban life and includes an efficient floor plan that stretches well beyond its 1,429 square feet. Nearly every room opens to the outdoors, and views of the foothills are captured through the massive sliding glass panels.

Missoni for Target Collection

Target’s designer collaborations with lines like Liberty of London, Jean Paul Gaultier, Zac Posen Alexander McQueen and many more, have brought high-end fashion to the masses for over five years. There is always a fashion feeding frenzy over the collaborations, thanks to an evil mix of advanced hype, secrecy, and a sense of urgency spurred on by Target’s limited-time-only events.

And now Target is joining forces with the luxury Italian home and fashion brand Missoni to release the 400-piece Missoni for Target collection. The line will include pretty much everything under the sun, including a plethora of zigzagged clothing for women, men, kids, and babies, shoes, knits, office products, luggage, housewares, accessories–even a Missoni-clad bike!

Of course, my eye is on the home decor, which is all Target-priced. Items range from $3 to $600 with most landing around $40. The Missoni for Target collection launches in stores and online September 13 and runs until October 22. But get there early if you want the good stuff! It will go fast.

Structures & Style: Fashion Blueprints In West Hollywood

LA fashion gets a bad rap. It’s pointed to for flip flops at business meetings and dudes in bedazzled Ed Hardy. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that the anti-fashion stereotype is only partly true. There’s certainly a fair share of Christian Audigier and teacup Pomeranians rolling around in designer purses, but there’s also incredible fashion and gorgeous architecture around every corner. It is the intersection of fashion and architecture that West Hollywood’s Structures & Style: Fashion Blueprints is exploring and celebrating this Saturday, August 27th.

Beginning at 11am, there will be a guided walking and shuttle tour. Participants will explore the latest architecture, design, and fashion concepts at some of the top boutiques in West Hollywood, including 3.1 Phillip Lim, H.L.N.R., Alberta Ferretti, Roseark and Church Boutique. The event will close with a reception catered by Craig’s at the new West Hollywood Library. You’ll drink and dine while viewing the murals created by Shepard Fairey, Retna and Kenny Scharf. Most importantly, all proceeds go to the WEHO Community Housing Corporation, which raises money to build affordable housing for low-income families.

Tickets for the Structures & Style: Fashion Blueprints are $185, but for Take Sunset readers, there’s a special insider rate of $110! Go here to purchase your discount tickets directly through PayPal. And for more information, a detailed schedule and map, go here.
