For the first time ever, The Hollywood Reporter is hosting a showhouse and it's a good one: covering two units on the twentieth floor of the super-fancy The Century condos (so fancy it's fit for Candy Spelling). Since THR is the media sponsor, the rooms are "Hollywood-inspired": "Each room in the residence will let the visitor imagine they are stepping into the private space of a quintessential Hollywood icon" (e.g., Marmol Radziner and Associates's bedroom might suit "a David Fincher type," according to THR, while Kathryn M. Ireland's kitchen is fit "for a Parisian actress). Besides MR and Ireland, scads of LA's other design biggies also worked on the project, including Waldo Fernandez, Cliff Fong, Trip Haenisch, and even Robert AM Stern Architects, which designed The Century (their work is in an elevator vestibule). A set of up-and-comers were invited in to design interstitial spaces, like the hallway that connects the two units (for a full list of who designed what, see the last slide in the gallery). The showhouse is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from tomorrow through November 18; tickets are $40 and proceeds go to the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, under-construction nearby in the Beverly Hills Civic Center.
