what house is that?

the comment in the previous post about 24 is not apropos of nothing - does anyone know what house the president is staying in for his summit? its supposed to be somewhere in the LA vicinity and looks like a lautner - the pools, the exposed brick, the curving walls and glass. and the interiors are straight-out-of-wallpaper/bond movie mid-century modern. is this an actual house or just some smart art director's clever interpretation of a lautner?

and what exactly is 24 trying to say about mid century modernism and logan's troubled, tepid presidency? should we read into that?

and while I'm on the subject of design and TV, how gorgeous are the sets in nip/tuck? someone there has a jones for hollywood regency and mid-century modernism. and I'm not the only one who noticed. great use of interior design as a way to reinforce character development.

I don't watch 24 anymore; might have to take a peek.

Nor have I seen Nip/Tuck. But some of those pics via the link lead one to believe that Kelly Wearstler is one of the show's art directors.

that's what I thought too. lots of regency touches and chandeliers, esp this past eason.
