Wohlstetter House

A 1945 house designed by Josef Van der Kar, Architect and Garrett Eckbo, Landscape. In 1955, the LA Herald Examiner article called it "House in the Sky." Under-appreciated due to his communist leanings, Josef Van der Kar designed several mid-century California homes for influential clients. Designed for clients Albert and Roberta Wohlstetter, this home is particularly influential. It is said that Stanley Kubric based his character for Dr. Strangelove on Albert Wohlstetter.
