Sculptured House [1963]

Charles Deaton

‘If people do not have angles then we should not live in boxes’ – Charles Deaton

The Sculptured House stands as Deaton’s only residential work – one that he was unable to finish in its entirety. Its name stems from the architect’s desire to create a sprawling, curvilinear sculpture to call ‘home’ – with the residential aspects of the design realised following, with the assistance of remodel architect┬áNicholas Antonopoulos. As with Lautner designs of the period, the House was immortalised in film, being seen in Woody Allen’s ‘The Sleeper’ in 1973 (giving Deaton’s design the nickname ‘Sleeper House’.)
