Renowned Los Angeles Architect Stephen Kanner has his landmark home go on the market this month. His 5,500 square foot offering in South Laguna Beach has gone on the LA real estate market for just under $20 million.
Kanner Architecture in Los Angeles
Stephen Kanner was an American modern architect and co-founded the A+D Museum of Los Angeles. He was born in Chandler, Arizona and raised in the Mandeville Canyon neighborhood in Los Angeles. His grandfather, Herman Kanner, founded the family’s business, Kanner Architects, in 1946. Kanner’s father, Charles Kanner, an architect who served in the United States Air Force, became head of Kanner Architects in 1953 following Herman Kanner’s death. Kanner received both his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in architecture from a combined program at the University of California, Berkeley in 1980.
Kanner joined Kanner Architects in 1983 after the family business was commissioned to design the courthouse in East Los Angeles. The firm was headed by Kanner’s father, modernist architect Charles Kanner, until his death in 1998. Stephen Kanner then took the reigns and became the head of the company.
Kanner designed his own home in Pacific Palisades. His most recent projects included the Metro Hollywood Transit Village on Hollywood Boulevard, a lower income housing complex located at 26th Street and Santa Monica Boulevard, and the conversion of a commercial building into a luxury apartment building in Hollywood called Sunset Vine Tower.
The South Laguna Beach Project
The 5,500-square-foot house, in the gated community of Lagunita, is covered in polished, white Terrazzo flooring, with soaring ceilings and walls of glass, creating a dramatic, minimalistic effect. The house also has 3,000 square feet of outdoor space, including an ocean-view courtyard and a full exterior kitchen. A mosaic infinity pool with a waterfall, lawn and beach gate fill the grounds.
