Stanley Kubrick Retrospective: LACMA Presents Exhibition and Film Series

Stanley Kubrick   November 1, 2012–June 30, 2013 

Stanley Kubrick was known for exerting complete artistic control over his projects; in doing so, he reconceived the genres in which he worked. The exhibition covers the breadth of Kubrick’s practice, beginning with his early photographs for Look magazine, taken in the 1940s, and continuing with his groundbreaking directorial achievements of the 1950s through the 1990s.

His films are represented through a selection of annotated scripts, production photography, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props. In addition, the exhibition explores Napoleon and The Aryan Papers, two projects that Kubrick never completed, as well as the technological advances developed and utilized by Kubrick and his team. By featuring this legendary film auteur and his oeuvre as the focus of his first retrospective in the context of an art museum, the exhibition reevaluates how we define the artist in the 21st century

Film Series:  2012: A Kubrick Odyssey

The first of LACMA’s screening series presented in conjunction with the landmark exhibition Stanley Kubrick is a complete, chronological survey of the director’s oeuvre. From his largely unseen feature debut, Fear and Desire, to his posthumously released final film, Eyes Wide Shut, this retrospective will offer viewers the opportunity to consider how Kubrick’s style progressed over forty-five years of filmmaking.

Stanley Kubrick opens on November 1 and will be on view through June 30.

Honnold and Rex Research House Arrives onto Market Redone!

1514 Rising Glen Road, Sunset Plaza 90069, Honnold and Rex, architects, 1954
Originally built in 1954, this mid-century modern home was part of the Case Study Research homes examining new building materials through the initiative by Arts and Architecture magazine.  They had commissioned several Architectural Product's Research Homes throughout Southern California. The home was originally designed by architects Honnold and Rex.  Edward H. Fickett, FAIA did the next home commissioned by the magazine in 1955.  
This home has recently been renovated inside and out, utilizing the original qualities and architectural elements to expound upon.  Situated at the lower base of Sunset Plaza, 1514 Rising Glen Road certainly is worth mentioning as it is impeccably designed with all the modern comforts one needs in a contemporary home including a completely customizable audio and security system which can be controlled over your Smart Phone device or computer.
The home has had an extensive remodel executed by Xorin Balbes of Temple Home.  The handsome stone-faced fireplace towers tall and is visible from the living area and dining area.  There isn't a surface untouched without impeccable detailing.
The open floor plan allows seemless flow throughout the downstairs living area. The home recently went through an extensive renovation by architect and principal, Xorin Balbes from Temple Home.  Not a detail is missing in this exquisite presentation.
The renovated kitchen has been updated with the finest of appliances and finishes.  The Gaggenau kitchen design accentuates the modern lifestyle.  Miele and Sub-Zero appliances allow for entertaining with ease.  Dornbracht fixtures and Anne Sacks surfaces bring the design to a completion.   Even with a center island, there is plenty of room to to sit-down and enjoy the activities while food preparation occurs.  Notice the large wine cooler.
The family room is another area to escape and relax.
Only a few steps up will take you to the bedroom which has been used as an office area.
The beautiful hardwood stairs lead up to the second floor and additional sleeping areas.
The master bedroom is sun-drenched with beautiful natural light.
The master bathroom is pure delight.  Jetted tub and large shower wet area with a wall of glass invite natural light.  Off of the master bath is a huge walk-in closet fit for a shoes and clothes lover.
Upstairs you will find more sleeping areas with spacious bedrooms.
Again, the finishes and materials used are just top-notch.
The beautiful outdoor area in the back includes a pool and spa with plenty of room for seating.

The home was last purchased in 2008 for $3,250,000.  Bring your offers!

Open House Tour - Lautner's Schaffer Residence: Character of a Home - A Single Man

The Schaffer Residence, John Lautner architect, 1949
Built in 1949, by master architect, John Lautner offered the market and film industry, The Schaffer Residence located in Glendale, CA.  Currently, the 2 bedroom and 1 1/2 bathroom home is listed for $1,395,000.  With that said, there will be an open house Tuesday, October 30, 2012 from 11am until 2pm. The mid-century modern masterpiece was chosen by Tom Ford as the home of George Falconer, played by Colin Firth in A Single Man, set in 1962.
Tucked away in the Verdugo Mountains, this boastful home uses local resources such as redwood, concrete and glass to create a modern retreat of 1,698sf resting on 11,000+sf surrounded by mature trees in a quiet Glendale neighborhood.
The Schaffer Residence is located at 527 Whiting Woods Road, Glendale, CA  91208.
Restored surfaces and hardware are found throughout this home with incredible integrity intact.

MLS listing 11-505859, courtesy Crosby Doe, CD&P.
Character of a House: A Single Man:
Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, A Single Man, is the story of George Falconer, a 52 year old British college professor [Colin Firth] who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner, Jim [Matthew Goode].  The home plays the perfect backdrop with its architectural features presenting the viewer with more depth of George's psyche.  Below, creating a transparent separation, through a plate of glass, we see George.
A Simple Man, directed by Tom Ford, 2009, Schaffer Residence, John Lautner
George dwells on the past and cannot see his future as we follow him through a single day, where a series of events and encounters, ultimately leads him to decide if there is a meaning to life after Jim.  The architectural lines of this home create a true sense of tension and things going eschew with George.
A Simple Man, directed by Tom Ford, 2009, Schaffer Residence, John Lautner
George is consoled by his closest friend Charley [Julianne Moore], a 48 year old beauty who is wrestling with her own questions about the future. New Year's resolutions anyone?
A Simple Man, directed by Tom Ford, Charley's House
A young student of George's, Kenny [Nicholas Hoult], who is coming to terms with his true nature, stalks George as he feels in him a kindred spirit.  Kenny aids George as he goes into the bathroom to retrieve rubbing alcohol and bandages.  Pulling open a vanity drawer,  he comes across a revealing detail about George's life.
A Simple Man, directed by Tom Ford, 2009, Schaffer Residence, John Lautner
A Single Man is a romantic tale of love interrupted, the isolation that is an inherent part of the human condition, and ultimately the importance of the seemingly smaller moments in life.  The house creates the subtle character of George's psyche, which has always fascinated me.
A Simple Man, directed by Tom Ford, 2009, Schaffer Residence, John Lautner
