Designed by Legendary Architect Raphael Soriano, Gogol House in L.A. Is Listed for $3.5M

One of the few remaining structures designed by the modernist architect Raphael Soriano has hit the market in Southern California for $3,495,000.

Soriano’s Gogol House in Los Angeles was built in 1939 and stood out from the tract homes being built throughout the area.

“This particular home was one of the first modern homes around Los Angeles, and even the neighbors didn’t know what to make of it,” explains the listing agent, Brian Courville. “Obviously, as time goes on, these kind of homes become very appreciated for their uniqueness and architecture and design.”

So it figures the current owner is a designer who purchased the home in 2011. Over the past decade, the home has been meticulously renovated, while keeping Soriano’s original ideas intact.

“It’s special because it has been preserved, restored, and renovated with respect to what my client feels the architect would have appreciated,” Courville says.
