Second offering in six decades for Modernist treasure
Howard Lane, a visionary architect and onetime student of Mies van der Rohe, is best known for Modernist landmarks that define LA’s business landscape. His 1957 Schustack Residence is one of his few living spaces — and a rare reflection of his mastery of space, light and environment. 


Set on 19,000 square feet off the Strip in the Hollywood Hills near Sunset Square, the Mid-Century post and beam at 1816 Stanley Avenue is listed at $3,499,000. Its owner, an international menswear designer whose fans include legions of rock stars, has added hints of his own Zen-based aesthetic (including a serene and period-perfect kidney-shaped pool) while honoring its original design. 


Howard Lane spent much of his career creating modern commercial icons like  the Neo-Streamline Moderne Travelers Insurance Building on Ventura Boulevard, working with giants like Skidmore Owens & Merrill, A.C. Martin, and Pereira and Luckman. His residential work is rare. The meticulous level of planning that went into this house is evident at every turn. Lane skillfully combines areas for family gatherings indoors and out with private spaces for each family member and situates activity zones around a central kitchen. Modernist touchstones are incorporated throughout, from sleek, warm wood paneling to slender clerestory windows and wall-sized glass doors off the patio and the master bedroom. Now, curated with care, the Schustack residence, listed by JB Fung and Brian Courville, is ready for its next fortunate fan.
