Whenever a new house designed by Roger Kurath comes on the market, excitement builds among the architecture and real estate communities of Los Angeles and beyond.
“Life in this house is a creative experience. It inspires at every turn: sundrenched with natural light and opulent use of space that allows residents to live, work, and entertain without missing a beat,” George said. “Every room has a terrace, including a majestic one outside the entertainment floor. The kitchen and bathrooms’ cabinetry was custom-made in German and they speak of timeless design,” Yana added.
Listed at $1,995,000, the 3,390-plus-square-foot, four-bedroom (all with terraces), four-bathroom home features a 1,000 square-foot entertaining hall with a 500-square-foot terrace with incredible views of downtown’s skyline. It is located within blocks of trendy restaurants and shopping; concert venues; famous nightclubs such as Satellite, The Echo, and El Cid; and is just one mile from Walt Disney Concert Hall and downtown Los Angeles.
All construction materials and designs have been personally selected by Swiss-born Kurath, who has won numerous architectural awards in the U.S. and Switzerland. Acclaimed for his ultramodern residences, he studied with famed architects Frank Gehry, Thom Mayne, and Greg Lynn. He owns the architecture firm design*21 in Los Angeles.
Several years ago, Kurath opened a design office in Switzerland focused on designing and building projects with the emphasis on prefabrication and energy-efficient design and construction.
“Roger Kurath has become an industry thought leader in quality, precision, and high-performance design,” George said. “The Delta Street house is a masterpiece and is already a candidate for an AIA award. Roger also has a $17 million mansion and two more houses in the $3 million to $7 million range in the final stages of construction.”
