Actress Tara Subkoff buys Streamline Moderne in Silver Lake
In the hills of Silver Lake, a striking Streamline Moderne style house that towers over the neighboring properties has found its next owner: Tara Subkoff.
The actress and fashion designer, who appeared in films like When the Bough Breaks and The Cell before starting the art collective and fashion label Imitation of Christ, must have liked what she saw. She spent $ 2.25 million on the architectural apartment, which is $ 255,000 more than the asking price. Records show that the seller was the former curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art Philipp Kaiser.
The three-story building was built by architect Saul Harris Brown in 1938 as his personal residence and has received a few facelifts in the decades since. The architect Gregory Ain designed the surrounding gardens and opened up the interiors for indoor and outdoor living, and Kaiser brought in the architects from Escher GuneWardena to modernize the living spaces.

A funicular takes guests up from the street to the house, which has four bedrooms and three bathrooms over an area of 2,780 square meters. Everything in the common spaces is curvy, from arched doors to rounded glass walls with views of the city and mountains.
There is a flat living room with a fireplace, a dining area, and a long, quaint pantry-style kitchen with picture windows. Most rooms combine white walls with hardwood floors, but the bathrooms add pops of color with green and red tiles. A roof terrace is enthroned above. Below tiered gardens descend to a lawn.
The 48-year-old Subkoff starred in more than a dozen films in the 1990s and 2000s, including “As Good as It Gets”, “The Last Days of Disco” and “All Over Me”. In 2015 she made her directorial debut with “#Horror”.
Coldwell Banker Realty’s Brent Watson and Marco Salari held the listing. Lilian Pfaff from Suprstructur represented Subkoff.
