Holgar & Holgar by the beach

Repost this day in 2017:

I do love a good #HolgarAndHolgar! The 1975 Saade house in #BlackRock, elevated for beach views, with their fave flattened out #OscarNeimeyer curved T shaped supports. Built for a well to do Lebanese family who wanted modernism and glamour, they naturally turned to Polish born husband and wife team of John and Helen Holgar, whose architural output from the 50s on got more and more interesting. #HolgarandHolgar were known for the glamourous luxury interiors, within their flowing modernist lines (apparently they were nicknamed Vulgar & Vulgar). Found some blurry real estate shots of the interior from 2014 when it sold for $2.4 mill, which seems like a bargain now. Pleased to see it doesn’t appear to have changed, at least from the outside.
