Streamline Moderne Art Deco Monument in Los Angeles
The City of Los Angeles named the Lydecker House historic monument #918 because of its "extraordinary design" and "master craftsmanship."

Three sides of the mid-century streamline moderne house are visible from the street. Walls of windows wrap around curved walls.

The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles called TheLydecker House "an outstanding residence of the Art Deco Period."
A large deck surrounds the rear exterior walls of windows and glass brick.
The house was designed by Academy Award nominated special effects artist Howard Lydecker. Like the sets he designed, the house is camera friendly from almost every angle.

Expansive hillside views are visible from most rooms and the large deck.
