By Tish Wrigley

SCI-Arc founder Ray Kappe’s debut commission has landed on the market for the first time in a decade.

The Waymire Residence was built in Los Angeles in 1958 and is set over 1,906 sq ft. Its pitched floor-to-ceiling windows offer a panoramic sweep over Los Angeles, from Downtown to Century City to the Getty Museum.
