“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill


The only thing I really enjoyed about Tom Ford’s 2009 movie A Single man was the house that Colin Firth’s character lived in.  Afterwards I found out it was the iconic Schaffer house in LA designed in 1948 by John Lautner.  In fact it was my first introduction to John Lautner (well worth a google).  The house recently sold and the new owners undertook a renovation with Park McDonald.  A renovation focused on the integrity of the original design. This is a stunning home and a great example of how our surroundings can inspire and uplift!
