John Lautner and his stunning Silvertop was commissioned by Inventor Kenneth Reiner what was to become one of the most technically and structurally innovative houses in the world. Bestor Architecture recently completed a three year rejuvenation and revitalization on the home. “Some of the innovations included the pre-stressed concrete roof that spans 80 feet and mimics the hill the house rests on, a cantilevered driveway, an infinity edge pool, heating and cooling via an air-floor system of concealed mechanical and electrical systems, a custom designed mechanical living room glass door, and other custom automated wood louvers, folding shades for skylights, and sliding doors. It is Lautner’s first major use of monolithic concrete as a sculptural as well as an architectural component and embodies the mid-century architect’s future thinking.”
