In Palm Springs, architects, designers and craftsmen are working to restore Bob Hope's legendary estate. https://lat.ms/2Im8EVW
While John Lautner envisioned a residence that blended in with the surrounding rocky landscape, Bob and Dolores Hope had other ideas. They were Hollywood royalty and wanted a home to reflect that status. https://lat.ms/2Im8EVW
When the house was completed in 1980, Lautner walked away dismayed. The desert residence was considered as a footnote, rather than a highlight, in a distinguished career. https://lat.ms/2Im8EVW
Thanks to the deep pockets of venture capitalist Ron Burkle, the house is being remade to reflect the architect’s original vision. Read more from @tinadaunt on the restoration of Bob Hope’s Palm Springs estate: https://lat.ms/2Im8EVW
