Another Ray Kappe house

Postby grh122 » Fri Sep 28, 2007 12:54 pm

Ray Kappe was the topic in another thread recently ( http://www.lottaliving.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=10393 ), and I hadn't seen him mentioned here often, so I didn't know that some of you were into his work. For those who are, here is a link to his 1974 Katzenstein House:

Thanks so much. Great pics. I'm his biggest fan.

The house at the end, #733 -- also Kappe ? Maybe not.

Thank you. That's one of the few of his houses that I've seen interiors of; as you know it has levels of "trays" or platforms resting on long glue-lams. Quite a tour-de-force. . .

Yes, thank you! I always like these amateur photos in addition to professional because they tend to be so honest about what the homes really look like. I love his own home, and I'm beginning to wonder if a Porsche in the carport - old or new - is a prereq. for a Kappe house.

Thanks Josquin. The Shapiro house seems to show Kappe moving in a Japanese direction ? Very calm.

Yeah. Arata Isozaki and others found out how difficult it is to produce that surface without obvious flaws. . .

I wonder if the Ray Kappe Katzenstein House is the same family that has the A. Quincy Jones (Marmol+Radziner restored) Katzenstein house? They are both in the Palisades.

To see the Jones version, go to http://www.marmol-radziner.com/ and under "Living" scroll down and click on "Katzenstein Residence."

A Ray Kappe house had a a co-starring role in the Showtime Series Californication this past week. It seems that one of the main characters is an architect and her ex-husband got her a job designing an addition and a pool for the house. Not sure which house it is, but it is for sure all Ray Kappe!

Seems Ray Kappe is on the tip of everyones tounges these days. I notice a Kappe design is to be on the MAK tour this weekend!

Kappe also designed this 1962 condo building (conversion) in Beverly Hills.
