Los Angeles-Style Homes
Examine the beauty of pure geometry and the power of open spaces defined by mid-century modern architecture that characterizes Los Angeles.

Mid-century modern architecture was pioneered by visionaries like Charles and Ray Eames and Richard Neutra. Their emphasis on clean geometric lines and airy structures created homes that still read as ultra modern today. Design by Studio Peek Ancona
The Beginning of Modern Style
The Neutra House, designed by Richard Neutra, is located in Silver Lake and exemplifies "California modern" style. Its compact floor plan integrates the California landscape into architectural designs.
Mid-Century Modern Features
Remodeled by bittonidesignstudio, the Evans House was updated from its original 1957 design. Located in Crestwood Hills, this home features clean geometric lines and a crisp tonal palette, typical of the pure aesthetic of mid-century modern architecture.
This Los Angeles home features expansive glass walls and a loft-style design. Clean lines and the use of natural materials reflect the mid-century modern ethos of being in harmony with nature.
A Picturesque View
Large expansive windows, such as ones used in this home designed by Michael Parks, ensure that open floor plans receive as much light as possible. This also allows the diverse Californian landscape to permeate interior spaces. Photo by Jeffrey Elson
