James Goldstein Residence

Angelo View Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90210

Designed by John Lautner and immortalized in the popular comedy film, “The Big Lebowski”, this is what was known yesterday as the Sheats-Goldstein House (or The Big Lebowski House) and it was donated to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, by current resident, fashion and basketball aficionado James Goldstein. Goldstein is an “NBA superfan” who attends over one hundred NBA games each season typically in courtside seats, including approximately 95 percent of home games for the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers. He has apparently been to over a two thousand games.

Lautner designed this iconic home in 1963 for a prominent doctor and artist, the “Sheats” who moved out several years later, only for Mr. Goldstein to buy the iconic home in 1972 and in 1980 he began a major renovation. Because of Mr. Goldstein’s generosity and because of his patronage to the people of Los Angeles, we’re calling this one the “James Goldstein Residence” moving forward, forever immortalizing James Goldstein and his devotion to this iconic home — and to the architecture world in general. No offense to the Sheats, but this guy deserves it.

In the movie The Big Lebowski, this is the Jackie Treehorn house that has actually been in several movies. It also appeared in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and Bandits. It is a cherished piece of residential architecture that will forever live on in its most pristine state.

From the press release: “LACMA Announces Landmark Promised Gift of The James: Goldstein House. First Gift of Architecture to LACMA Includes Endowment for Maintenance and Preservation of Historic John Lautner House, Gardens, and Contents, as well as Programming (Los Angeles, February 17, 2016)—The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) announced today that fashion and basketball aficionado James Goldstein has promised his John Lautner-designed home, its contents, and the surrounding estate to LACMA. The promised gift, which is in a new area of collecting for the museum, includes a James Turrell Skyspace in its extensive landscaped tropical gardens, an infinity tennis court, and an entertainment complex. Mr. Goldstein’s extensive fashion collection, works by artists including Ed Ruscha, DeWain Valentine, Bernar Venet, and Kenny Scharf, architectural models of the property, and an iconic Rolls Royce Silver Cloud from 1961 are included in the gift.

Mr. Goldstein said, Over the course of many meetings with Michael Govan, I was very impressed with his appreciation for the history of the house and the role it has played in the cultural life of Los Angeles, as well as with his vision for continuing that tradition when the house becomes an important part of LACMA’s collections. Following last year’s 50th anniversary gifts to LACMA, I decided now was the perfect time to announce that I will leave my house and its contents to the museum. Hopefully, my gift will serve as a catalyst to encourage others to do the same to preserve and keep alive Los Angeles’s architectural gems for future generations.”
