THE HOUSE ON SUNSET is an invitation only collaborative work space where invited Members have access to an artful and thoughtfully designed “urban gallery” housed in a re-imagined Paul R Williams icon on Sunset Boulevard at the nexus of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills.
THE HOUSE was designed by noted architect Paul R Williams in 1936. Williams’ significance in Los Angeles architectural history includes projects like designing the original LA courthouse and residential projects for stars like Lucille Ball and Frank Sinatra.
Kohner managed the careers of Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, and many other major stars of the day. Perhaps the most notable Hollywood royalty in residence was Orson Welles who presented the Orson Welles Awards from the building’s penthouse. The House on Sunset is notable for its Deco Moderne design and Walt Disney was so taken with the Façade and Secret Garden that he created a replica of it at Disneyland. Most recently it was the offices of Rob Reiner and Castle Rock Entertainment.
