Yesterday commenced the first of the four John Lautner house tours organized by the Hammer Museum and MAK Center. We featured a sneak peek at the Tyler House in Studio City last week, and today we show off the 1956 Harpel House, located off of Mulholland. The home was restored by Mark Haddawy (who also restored two Neutras and Koenig's Case Study 21); he purchased the house in 2006 for $2.99 million and has spent the past two years and another $500,000 restoring it, ripping out a second story addition, and meticulously re-creating Lautner's original interior details such as the angled kitchen and the light fixtures. Additionally, he used period-appropriate furnishings.
