Tucked into a hillside above Hollywood Boulevard in the acclaimed Whitley Heights, sits an international style gem built in the 1930s by the esteemed Hungarian architect Paul Laszlo.

The deliberately strong palette and mechanically simple detailing reinforce both the architect’s uncharacteristically masculine, subtle architecture and the client’s ever-evolving, equally exquisite furniture and art collection.

Greige-lacquered walls, blackened cerused wood floors, Etruscan mosaics, black walnut and bronze cabinetry align to illustrate the Metropolis-inspired palette developed for this full-architectural renovation.
