The sunny Valley was a suburban utopia for Hollywood celebrities with a penchant for sprawling ranches, and mid-century architects who were inspired by its vast open spaces, walnut and orange groves, and dramatic mountain views. Postwar "California ranch homes" and modernism quickly became a way of life, so it’s no surprise that you’ll find work by Schindler, Lautner, Waxman, Kappe, Spanner, Dorman, Ain, Palmer & Krisel, Fickett and Neutra that utilize natural materials and plenty of glass to blend with the Valley’s diverse landscape and hilly backdrop.
