Los Angeles Architecture Architect Adg

Los Angeles Is Synonymous with Modern Architecture

With examples such as the Schindler House built in 1922 in West Hollywood, the Fitzpatrick- Leland House built in 1936 on Laurel Canyon, and the Mackey Apartments built in 1939 on South Cochran Ave, Los Angeles has been the mecca of modern architecture for almost 100 years.

The modern movement, or modern architecture defined in simple terms, is based on new groundbreaking, and many times avant-garde technologies of construction. The materials used are also part of the allure, for along with its clean lines and minimalist concept is the use of such materials as glass, steel, and reinforced concrete. The mantra of modern architecture is form follows function, which accounts for such innovative shaped buildings and creative living spaces.

Los Angeles is still going strong in the new crop of architects that are making their way into neighborhoods and city streets by way of their uniquely constructed building and living concepts.

Are you curious about how to see all the new modern masterpieces in Los Angeles architecture all at once? A book published by Prestel available on Amazon titled “New Architecture Los Angeles” does a fantastic job of chronicling the new modern architecture starting from the year 2000.

Akin to designing and building a piece of architectural genius, this book is also a collaboration of text written by Brooke Hodge, whose resume includes Director of Exhibitions and Publications at the Hammer Museum; Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles, and most recently was named Palm Springs Art Museum’s first Architecture & Design Director.

The pictures in this book are breathtaking and taken by architectural photographer Mike Kelley.  

Some examples of the new modern architecture include: the Formosa 1140, built in 2008 on North Formosa in West Hollywood and designed by Lorcan O’ Herlihy Architects (LOHA); the Wilshire Grand Center, built and designed by AC Martin in 2017 and located on (surprise) Wilshire Blvd. in Downtown LA; and the Vespertine, built in 2016 in Culver City by Eric Owen Moss Architects.

Los Angeles is just one of those cities which happens to have a psychic architectural past…just one of the many mysteries of living in LA.

Proud To Be Part Of Award-Winning Design Team

 

Creative collaboration is a big part of ADG Lighting’s business model. When an opportunity presents itself for creative collaboration with design projects, ADG Lighting is right there to work with clients and premier designers to translate vision into reality. A recent project collaboration received high praise for the work on a Los Angeles area home. The work was awarded the Best of Year award for Large House from Interior Design Magazine.

Award-Winning Design and Manufacture

ADG Lighting entered into a partnership with Delta Wright Interior Design (formerly of Curated) to translate the vision of the client and design partner into reality. The 12,000 square foot project home is located on four acres in Brentwood and originally designed by the renowned architect Hagy Belzberg of Belzberg Architects. The original design reflected the desires of the homeowners to occupy a ‘real family’ home. ADG was commissioned to design and custom manufacture several fixtures and furnishings for the avant-garde home, including a restored mid-century modern Italian vintage glass orb chandelier in the powder bathroom, an artisan glass blown modern chandelier in the kitchen, and a ten foot long custom pool table cue wall rack to complement the French pool table.

“The project definitely provided us an avenue to express our creative abilities. The unique composition of the home provided some design challenges that we were ready to tackle. We enjoyed working with Delta and her team.”

Gerald Olesker, Founder and CEO

The award is part of Interior Design’s 10th Annual Best of Year awards.
