L.A. based architecture firm Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects (LOHA) has restored and modernized Julius Shulman’s home and studio (originally designed by Raphael Soriano and completed in 1950) in the Hollywood Hills, where the renowned photographer lived for almost 60 years.
LOHA matched the original materials when possible and reestablished the fundamental perimeter and profile of the structure. Key experiential moments of the home, such as an all-cork entry sequence, were also preserved. This historical respect, in concert with an approach that engaged the property as a dynamic environment and not a precious artifact, drove LOHA’s enhancement of the more functional spaces and created opportunities for new designed interventions.
