ain home tour coming up: orans home in silverlake

Well, it's been a whole year, but we're still around.  Lots and lots of street progress to post, but nothing today.  Who has time anymore??

I just wanted to pass along a quick mention of a great Gregory Ain home tour coming up the weekend of April 7, 2013.  Located on Micheltorena Street amongst several seminal architectural works by Ain, Richard Neutra, Harwell Hamilton Harris and John Lautner, the Orans House from 1941 is one of Ain's lesser well-known designs, but it's a stunning property.

And for those trivial pursuitists out there, the restoration/renovation work done on the Orans property was led by local architect Antony Unruh, who runs his practice out of the old Ain office (click on the street view) in Silverlake on Hyperion Ave.  I trust the tour will reveal a respectful eye for detail in this rarely seen property, but also know there are new editions and modifications that include an extended kitchen.  You can read a little more here, which is where I clipped the following pic...

Check out the tour specs over here at the Los Angeles AIA site.  Hope you can make it.

...and stay tuned for updates soon!
