Most may know him as the proprietor of The Garage Cafe (and bar and architectural fragment repository) in the Highland Park/Five Points area. Others may know him as the namesake of a fried lobster dish on the menu of the fabulous Fish Market. But Fritz Woehle is also an architect who built some wonderful modern homes in the 1950s and 1960s. I happened across some images of Woehle's own residence (an Architectural Record "Record House" in 1964) and thought I would share them with you all.
I have to confess that I have no idea where this house is, but I understand that it is nestled snugly on 20 secluded acres. So, even if I knew where it was, I wouldn't be able to see it. I think sometimes it is better not knowing.
UPDATE: The house is on Old Brook Trail, which is off of Pump House Road in the Altadena area. But it is in the center of the large wooded lot, so may not be visible anyway. Of note, one could hike from the Woehle house through the woods to the equally groovy Ireland House on Pump House road.
Woehle's home is lovely. Photographs are attributed to Alexandre Georges. Enjoy.
Your bonus for ordering today: The Ireland House, ca. 1965, also a Woehle design, in all its crisp colonnaded coolness:
