The Ain Office, built in 1949 by Gregory Ain, appropriately enough, is for sale in Silverlake.
With its atrium entry, and back garden patio, this light filled modernist space feels more like a home than an office. Like his Exhibition House constructed the following year at the Museum of Modern Art, flexible interiors are organized by mobile space dividers. The plan provides for reception, a private office, conference room, studio, bath, and kitchen. From the LottaLiving Forum we learn the price on the 800 sf structure has just been reduced to $595,000. If you're planning on using the office as a home please be aware it features a bath that is "half inside" with an outdoor shower.
