The cubist compound Frank Gehry designed for graphic artist Lou Danziger in Hollywood has hit the market, The Real Deal has learned. The rental market. 

That’s right, for a mere $15,000 a month, you can live and work in the 2,750-square-foot property at 7001 Melrose Avenue that is noted as one of Gehry‘s first buildings to receive widespread attention.

Designed in 1965, the Danziger Studio and Residence is an interpretation of a cubist compound with “distinctly separate live-work areas enjoined by rising walls of stacked casement,” according to the listing. The residential portion is true to early Gehry, with an open floor plan that has two bedrooms and one bath aloft a two-story living space with a centralized courtyard.

The two-story open studio space also includes two offices and a guest bath.

David Findley and Alex Quaid of Partners Trust have the listing.

The Danziger property was purchased by the representative of a trust in 2011 for $1.6 million, according to records. That buyer appears to be the landlord.
