Porst SP Lipetz House 1

Raphael Soriano’s first residential commission arose from his knowledge and passion for both language and music. The main feature of the house was to be a music room with excellent acoustic properties that could accommodate Mrs. Lipetz’s Bechstein Grand piano and up to twenty guests. The site itself is on the pinnacle of a hill overlooking Silver Lake.


The design is in the International Style, built with traditional wood stud construction, similar to Richard Neutra’s frame, but with one innovate technological detail - steel beams supported the ground floor. The house is in good condition with slight alterations.
