    Default John Lautner's Harpel house


    Harpel house, John Lautner


    ( Gary Friedman / Los Angeles Times ) Midcentury architect John Lautner’s Harpel house in the Hollywood Hills was written off by some preservationists after previous owners added a second story and installed stucco walls, track lighting, aluminum window frames and other features ill-suited for the 1956 design. After two years of renovation, however, current owner Mark Haddawy has revived Lautner’s original vision, peeling away misguided additions and studiously re-creating the architect’s light fixtures, doorknobs and other details.

    (Gary Friedman / Los Angeles Times) Haddawy pored over old photographs and blueprints before embarking on the renovation, which included new custom lighting that matches the original design.
