AN Celebrity Party #1

Monday, March 9, 2009

Since we’re in LA, it was only a matter of time until The Architect’s Newspaper got to visit a celebrity party. This Saturday we were invited to the launch of author Jerry Stahl’s new thriller Pain Killers, thrown by none other than Ben Stiller and his wife Christine Taylor. How did we get in? Thanks to voiceover artist-cum-architect-extraordinaire Janna Levenstein, who designed the 5,000 square foot Hollywood Hills pad (pictured above) that housed the festivities: 1615 Rising Glen.

Once a cramped, impractical midcentury Modern, the indoor/outdoor home is now tricked out with terrazzo floors; wraparound Koi ponds; a lava-lined pool; tropical wood-clad walls, cabinets, and furniture; stainless steel fixtures, and a countless supply of custom details ranging from teak sinks to electronically controlled everything.

So what did AN‘s fearless California Editor say to Stiller? “Um.You guys were great,” he said, in response to the couples’ creative posing for the party favor of the night: a custom-made flip book. Ok, we’re still training for the Hollywood thing. Don’t worry, we’re not in the papparazi. No pictures were taken at the party. At least not by us.
