Craig Ellwood, 1952-53. LA Historic-Cultural Monument #801. Originally designed as four interlocking apartments in Hollywood for celebrity TV host Roy Maypole, this complex gave the first international recognition to its Case Study designer Craig Ellwood. The exposed steel, glass, and brick; the seamless play between indoors and out; the use of newly developed materials - all became the signature elements in Ellwood's successive work. Set behind a translucent wall, the apartments' facade reveals two converging diagonal trusses as if to signal a pediment entry. The current layout is 3 units consisting of two, 2-bed/1-bath and one large 2-bed/2.5 bath with office/converted 3rd bedroom. Each one is 2 story, has been restored, and includes a private entrance, enclosed large patio, fireplace, washer/dryer, up-to-date systems and appliances. High Walk Score, close to fine dining, theaters, major Studios, Hollywood Walk of Fame, hiking, and public transit. Low taxes because of Mills Act. Paraphrasing Reyner Banham, this architecture, through its exposed structure, reinforces the honesty, clarity, and unity of the modern movement.
