Among his awarded and published work said to be “an extension of the early Southern California master architects: Wright, Schindler, Neutra, and Harwell Hamilton Harris,” Kappe built this 12-unit complex in 1963.
Known for his innovative designs, Kappe purposely departs from the flat, exterior, facades typical in most condo buildings. Instead, each home flows in a unique curved pattern giving the building a striking street presence.
While the interior finishes may look more late 90s/early 2000s than mid-century modern, core architectural details like the tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass, and an abundance of natural light are left intact.
And a strong indoor-outdoor connection happens in front, with a spacious, covered, balcony nestled amongst the trees, offering spectacular city views. And, in back, there’s a private patio opening onto a sparkling, kidney-shaped, pool.
This well-maintained building also has the added bonus of being centrally located south of the Boulevard in the Cahuenga Pass, close to major Hollywood attractions, Studio City, Universal City, and a short bicycle ride to the Hollywood Bowl.
