Glazer Residence, Los Angeles, CA, 1979
This is the lone Rudolph project on the west coast.
"For visual excitement and to open the 3,000 square feet of interior space to the outdoors, Rudolph gave the house a pinwheel-shaped plan. Donald Luckenbill, the job captain, explains, 'There are three levels of indoor and outdoor spaces that spiral up to a fourth level, which contains the master bedroom suite.' On the sloping property the living room, guest bedroom, and kitchen are all adjacent to garden courts, each with a distinct character. Rudolph, who loves automobiles and thinks of them as 'outer garments that you put on and take off,' considers the vine-covered motor court as a special 'room for the car.'"
