Landscape Design Photography : Howard Hughes’ Former Estate

I was lucky enough to photograph the interiors and exteriors of Howard Hughes’ former estate last week, a beautiful Spanish home on Muirfield Road in Hancock Park.

Howard Hughes owned this home, designed by Roland E. Coate Sr., from 1926 to 1942 during which he shared it with Billie Dove and Katharine Hepburn. This is where he produced and directed Hell’s Angels and designed the Spruce Goose.

Photos from that time can be found on the Architectural Digest website here:http://www.architecturaldigest.com/decor/2008-11/hughes_slideshow.

Feature
This week’s feature is an old barn that has been converted into a low energy family home. Madrid based studio Ábaton found the building to be too remote to be connected to mains power and water supplies, therefore the house has been designed to function entirely off grid. This is achieved via passive solar gains and a steady water and hydro-electricity supply from two nearby steams.
