For the Iron Man films, production designer Michael Riva and concept artist Phil Saunders based the design of Tony Stark’s mansion on Lautner’s architecture. The exteriors of the building (a series of computer-generated images which were digitally composited into location photos of Point Dume State Preserve in Malibu) are strongly reminiscent of Silvertop and Marbrisa (above), fancifully blending many of Lautner’s “signature” elements including the dramatic cliff-side location, large expanses of glass, classic “California split-level” layout and sinuous, organic lines.

These vintage images are such a testament to how advanced Lautner was for his time, they are still so chic and modern today. Such timeless beauty. Interiors play a huge part in Lautner’s designs
