Architect Rex Lotery designed the Modernist style house for French actress Corinne Calvet in 1959. The actress was promoted "as a combination of Dietrich and Rita Hayworth", but her persona failed to live up to this description, though the fault lay as much with a string of mediocre films as with a lack of a compelling talent. Her sultry looks and flashing eyes were allied with an impish sense of humor. She eventually became better known for her fiery private life and some well-publicized legal battles.

The 6-bedroom, 8-bath home in 8800 sq. ft. is currently (January 2022) listed for sale $27M and described in part as "Sparing no expense, design team Philippe Naouri and Eric Choi of Maison d'Artiste, in collaboration with Studio Tim Campbell, have fully reimagined this architectural treasure. Conceptualized for French actress Corinne Calvet in the 1950s and inspired by a chance meeting with Charlotte Perriand, Lotery pulled out every artistic stop in his design to honor and maintain mid-century minimalism. While he may never have imagined the modern luxuries that have been adapted to fill this artful space, he no doubt would approve of the current adaptation and precision of which has insured the integrity of the original design for years to come".

The 3-bedroom, 4-bath home in 3574 sq. ft. is currently (February 2020) listed for sale for $5.5M and described as Stunning tall multi-story concrete, steel and glass hard-edge contemporary home with walls of windows and glass capturing the closeness of mature trees and sky creating from every room the feeling of living with nature: Ray Kappe's tour-de-force.

Many balconies and decks throughout bring one to almost touch the trees. There are 3 main levels, with a spacious work-live space, updated kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, living room with second fireplace, family room, bonus room & two outdoor spas. "

Architect Rex Lotery originally designed the contemporary style house for Dr.& Mrs. Marvin Spanner in 1967. According to USModernist.org archives, architect Raymond Kappe remodeled the house in 1972. The 3-bedroom, 3-bath home was most recently (November 2017) listed for sale for $1,395,000 and was described in the listing "Rex Lotery departs from his sleek and sprawling one-story Trousdale Estate designs to build the “more explicitly vertical” Spanner Residence in Woodland Hills.

Lotery’s versatility as an architect is clear in this structure, “illustrating an interpretation of the Mid-Century Modernism that evokes the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and R. M. Schindler” writes LA Conservancy. Standing curbside you expect the architect’s solution to building a 2-story residence on a challenging hillside to be the typical division between ground-floor public spaces and walled-off bedrooms upstairs.

Instead, he designed the interior for psychologist Marvin Spanner and his family as a series of interlocking volumes and spaces on multiple levels unfolding as one progresses from one room to the next. With high clerestories and mitered corner windows sunlight gently flows and diffuses over the clearly and functionally defined spaces.


An indoor/outdoor flow is encouraged by patios, a pool, and plantings expanding the living space outside. Features include a 2-car garage with shop, dark room and wine cellar, a ground-floor library with full bath, and a large studio-office.

The residence also comes with a vacant lot that makes for a spectacular play yard or the perfect area for exercising your green thumb".

The Spanner Residence is located at 4143 Cachalote Street in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. Please do not use this image in any media without my permission. © All rights reserved.
