Home of the Week: A Japanese-inspired Midcentury in Bel-Air
In the 1960s, architect Tracy Price returned to L.A. from a trip to Japan and soon built a Bel-Air home that was inspired by his journey. Emphasizing minimalism and a Zen aesthetic, the single-story Midcentury “felt like living in an art gallery,” said Lauren Sand, who grew up in the stylish abode. Encircled by walls of glass, clerestory windows and indoor-outdoor spaces, the well-maintained home now includes a courtyard with a koi pond and a scenic backyard with a swimming pool set among lush gardens.
