James Bond House
Irwin Weiner ASID - We're starting the new year off with a salute to modern home architecture, and we're turning our attention today to architect John Lautner and his Elrod House in Palm Springs. The former Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice excavated the 23-acre property site and unearthed amazing boulders which became part of the organic design. Used in countless photo shoots, the house was put on the cinema map in the James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever. So like art to copy life, as this home is a real gem.
