Bob Hope Modern Home
Today we are looking at the legendary Bob Hope modern home in Palm Springs, California. It is pretty famous for it’s architectural wonders. I read that many a dignitary has visited the home. If memory by osmosis serves me right, this Bob Hope modern home was host to many important Hollywood stars and events.
Designed by modern architect, John Lautner, who according to wikipedia, after a fire destroyed the uncompleted original home, did not like Dolores and Bob Hope’s new design ideas and was not as involved in its rebuilding.
Whoosh! It’s a modern wonder home for sure that at first glance looks like a big city tourist building. But no, it was designed to fit in with the landscape of the desert to resemble the shape of a volcano – zillow blog reports. The over-sized roof has a gigantic circle light shaft to see that is amazing and we could think of as the opening to a volcano.
I think this Bob Hope modern home is a wonder of the world. Are you as amazed as I am at the ratio difference of the circle window in proportion to say, for example, the fireplace? Eye-blinking realization.
The house was listed for 50 million and is now half price at 25 million. Indeed, the listing details say the house is considered to be “one of the most iconic pieces of architecture in the world.”
