Full Details

Join us for our annual tours of "The Lautner"... famed American architect John Lautner's 1947 residential fourplex formerly known as Hotel Lautner. The owners have reintroduced this award winning property as The Lautner Compound. A collection of 3 boutique properties masterfully restored and designed; The Lautner, The Park and The Ranch House. "The Lautner" operates as an elite vacation rental property allowing architecture aficionados from around the world a chance to live the "Lautner Lifestyle" and is only open to the non-booking public once a year in honor of Modernism Week. This is your chance to immerse yourself in his spectacular and visionary architecture. Lautner is the most famous protege of Frank Lloyd Wright and "The Lautner" is reminiscent of Wright's school of architecture, Taliesin West, in Scottsdale, Arizona where he studied for 6 years. John Lautner was one of last century’s important contemporary American architects. His work was concerned with the relationship of the human being to space and of space to nature. Lautner is also known for the Bob Hope residence and the Arthur Elrod residence located in Palm Springs. But don't hold your breath for an invitation to see these private homes. Our ticket price will also include the opportunity to stroll through our 10,000 sq. ft. open air event space we call "The Park" and our 1957 California Bungalow we call "The Ranch House" which is an extension of our guest services for weddings and special events. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the John Lautner Foundation, striving to preserve the Lautner archive; educate the public on the architecture of Lautner; and provide support for preservation, protection and maintenance of all Lautner structures. Be a part of this important movement by supporting the foundation so that you too can play an integral role in preserving Lautner's architectural legacy.
