Garcia House

This eye-shaped house on stilts was built in 1962 for jazz-arranger Russ Garcia. Also known as the Rainbow house for the colorful stained glass panels in its vast facade, it’s divided in the middle by an open staircase, separating the public area designed for entertaining and slurping martini’s and the private element where the bedrooms are located, all contained beneath a vast curved roof. The house became the headquarters for a gang of suave international drug smugglers in Lethal Weapon 2, a snazzy choice of location that they probably regretted when Mel Gibson unceremoniously brought the whole operation to an end by tearing away one of the two V-shaped steel supports in his pickup truck.
