This House Has A Barragán Fountain And Yours Doesn't

New, 14 comments

A 1927 home in Beverly Crest has a fountain that was likely designed by Luis Barragán, Mexico's most revered architect, according to the Los Angeles Times. A Historic-Cultural Monument No. 637, the fountain is part of an adjoining pool that turns into a patio when the water is emptied out. Nice! Also, our homes are growing up: "As Southern California's architecture gets older and the region's appreciation of significant homes grows, the fountain also represents the rising importance of provenance -- the ability of homeowners to trace the pedigree of a house or garden much as an art collector might authenticate a painting."
