Lloyd Wright’s live-work space in WeHo finds a buyer
The West Hollywood house known as the Lloyd Wright Studio and Residence for its first owner has sold for $1.95 million.
Restored to maintain the architect’s original vision by his son, architect Eric Wright, the concrete block and stucco frame residence is made of two units – one for living and one for work.
The 2,413 square feet of living space has an upstairs residence with a living room, a fireplace and wooden floors. Interlocking blocks with a stylized Joshua tree design overlay some of the windows.
The downstairs studio has work space with concrete floors and a wall that opens to an enclosed outdoor patio.
An office/den, a dining area, a family room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms are among the interior spaces.
Lloyd Wright, who died in 1978, was the son of innovative architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The younger Wright incorporated his father’s avante-garde concrete block technique in the oft-photographed John Sowden House in Los Feliz. He is also known for designing the indoor-outdoor glass-clad Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes.
The property previously sold in 2002 for $900,000.
Aaron Kirman of John Aaroe Group and Ben Bacal of Rodeo Realty were the listing agents. Jana Helmig of Modern Properties represented the buyer.
