Architectural Marvel in Bel Air

(Krista Masella)

This Michael Kovac-designed contemporary in Bel Air features striking translucent glass, earning its name The Lantern House and a feature in the book “Sense of Place: Elements of CA Modernism.” The home reveals an open layout that flows seamlessly among multiple living spaces, gourmet kitchen, wet bar and gym, and outdoors through disappearing walls of glass. Via the elevator or the grand staircase, discover the primary retreat that encompasses the entire upper level. Spectacular views from DTLA to the coast accent the outdoor oasis with immaculate landscaping and pool/spa. A true emblem of architectural sophistication, this home is among the most notable of its kind in all of Los Angeles.
