SoCal’s Iconic Butterfly Roof

Butterfly-Style Roof, a SoCal Icon

If you spent any time in California, you’ve likely noticed an upside-down roof grace the top of many a mid-century modern home. Known as the “butterfly roof”, the style gets its name from its distinct silhouette reminiscent of a butterfly wing in mid-flap. The design was popularized during the post-war period, becoming a staple in American neighborhoods across the South-West, where the butterfly roof design allowed dramatic walls of glass that showcased the natural sunlight.

Stunning Mid-Century Modern Home for Sale in Beachwood Canyon

A Tale of Two Designers

The architect that is frequently credited with developing the butterfly roof design is William Krisel. Active in 1950’s, he is particularly renown for building modern home tracts in Palm Springs, now the site of many of his trademark butterfly roof creations. However, Krisel was not the first architect to come up with this eye-catching soaring feature – that honor goes to the Swiss-French architect and Modernist Pioneer, Le Corbusier, that first designed a home with a butterfly roof in Chile in 1930. Intended to overlook the Pacific Ocean in Zapallar, Maison Errazuriz was unfortunately never constructed.

Frankfurt Kitchen: A Brilliant Invention

Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, The Frankfurt Kitchen (c) MAK Center

As real estate agents, we definitely love a well-designed kitchen. It’s hard to imagine, but the kitchen as we know it is a fairly new invention. In fact, the modern kitchen is less than a hundred years old. The new design came into being in 1926 and radically reinvented the meaning of this space. Until that time, the kitchen was often a large mixed-use room used for dining, bathing, and even sleeping. The sinks, cabinets and the stove were scattered throughout the house, creating a hectic environment where preparing meals was rushed and stressful.

The Woman Behind The Modern Kitchen

Enter Margarete (Greta) Schutte-Lihocki, a designer who reimagined the kitchen to focus on usability and empowering women. In 1918, when young Greta enrolled in Vienna School of Applied Arts to study architecture, “it was unthinkable that a woman could be involved in the construction of houses, ” recalled Schutte-Lihocki. Everyone around her, family included, doubted that she could ever work professionally, and yet she went on to become the first woman architect in Austria.

Schutte Lihotzky

A Measured Approach to Domestic Architecture

After World War I, Germany experienced a severe housing shortage, and new apartment buildings rose to satisfy a dire middle-class demand. The 1920’s were marked by many initiatives in the architectural sphere, all aiming to construct light, airy and modern living environments for the modern era. Greta Schutte-Lihocki was hired to work on one such project, a housing development called “Neues Frankfurt”. The building held a collection of urban apartment units that were expected to demonstrate a new, functional form of urban living.

Tasked with designing an efficient kitchen, Greta embraced ideas of production optimization. She did detailed time-motion studies to determine how long each processing step in the kitchen took, re-designed and optimised workflows, and planned her kitchen design to support its function. Dedicating the kitchen exclusively to cooking, Schutte-Lihocki took it out of the living room by inserting a sliding door; thus separating the functions of work from those of living and relaxing, in accordance with her personal philosophy: “Firstly, life is work, and secondly it is relaxing, company, and pleasures.”

The resulting design brought together appliances, cabinetry and work surfaces into an efficient configuration that is familiar to us today; although now we see a changed attitude in the approach to separation from the living areas – instead of the sliding door of yesteryear, contemporary homeowners  often opt to have a breakfast bar or kitchen island. 

The kitchen reigns supreme as one of the most important spaces in the home, and the homes for sale we have open this weekend boast some exceptional examples – come take a look, we’ll be open rain or shine!
