Long before there was Gangnam Style, there was International Style. And a few days ago another fine specimen from one of L.A.’s International Style architect posse hit the market. The Antonio Polito House by Raphael is a restored three-level Bauhaus cube, located on a street-to-street lot in the hills above the Sunset Strip.

 The residence, which was highlighted in the February 1946 issue of Architectural Record and also noted in An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles, features cantilevered balconies, a continuous horizontal band of steel casement windows, stucco wall

The residence, which was highlighted in the February 1946 issue of Architectural Record and also noted in An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles, features cantilevered balconies, a continuous horizontal band of steel casement windows, stucco walls, a swimming pool, sunning platforms and a bridge to terraced gardens.

 All rooms other than the kitchen and bath faced south and an immense band of windows took advantage of the views of the Hollywood Hills and downtown Los Angeles.
