"Known to many as 'The Big Lebowski' house, it’s one of those places that sits you down and makes you say 'whoa' because of it’s daring imagination," Evan Troxel says.Read More

Conner & Perry Architects was recently mentioned in a well written and researched article in Apollo Magazine on the recent deal between the Goldstein Estate and LACMA. We highly recommend reading it (see link here) for a better understanding of the history of the property and the larger implications of the museum's acquisition of this architectural icon.
We eliminated the need for turnbuckles by using custom fabricated steel end supports developed by structural engineer Andrew Nasser. The canopy tent structure serves as a temporary cover to protect the entrance into the Goldstein entertainment complex.
A small step among many at the Goldstein Estate as the project continues to evolve towards its master planned design. Eventually the entry canopy will be replaced by a permanent concrete and glass roof structure that is part of the planned home theater building.
For more information about the project please contact Conner and Perry Architects.
New Year /
A new year is upon us and we are exited about breaking ground on a new single family home in Santa Monica Canyon. We have worked incredibly hard over the past year to bring this unique project to construction The house is based upon the final design concept of our late mentor Duncan Nicholson and we are pleased that it is now coming to fruition and that we continue to be a large part of making it a reality.
As we look forward to growing our practice this year we will do our best to see that all of our projects meet the high quality that was the standard under Nicholson Architects.
We will be updating the progress of this project as it rises from the ground and takes form. Please check back in and contact our office for more information or to inquire regarding your own one of a kind, Conner & Perry design.
"Located in Los Angeles the Sheats Goldstein house was designed by American architect John Lautner. An exemplary example of Organic Modernism the home is built into the sandstone ledge of a hillside creating a cave-like dwelling that takes full advantage of the surrounding nature as well as stunning views. Lautner was a master of the ‘challenging site’ (The Chemosphere, 1961 is certainly a good example) and this home’s design is an ideal solution to its steep hillside lot."Read More
