Photographer Julius Shulman is synonymous with mid century architecture and the images that were captured through his eye. The Julius Shulman Home and Studio was originally commissioned by Shulman, designed by Raphael Soriano, and completed in 1950. It is one of twelve remaining built Soriano projects, the only with an unaltered steel frame, and a City of Los Angeles Historic–Cultural Monument. LOHA was to not only restore the house but to update the house for current day living while keeping in harmony with the original design and aesthetic. I love that LOHA worked with the city of Los Angeles and needed to stay within certain guide lines because the house was “a notable landmark”. I think they did a fantastic job, the home is stunning.
