When Tom Ford made the leap from fashion design to filmmaking, we expected there’d be lots to love. But bringing so much more than just impeccable fashion to the screen, Ford’s directorial debut – A Single Man – had many pining for a retro-furnished redwood retreat with an open plan layout and glass frontage. Designed by architect John Lautner in 1949, the house at the centre of the film is the ultimate bachelor pad; nestled at the bottom of a woodland valley and yet 15 minutes from downtown LA.
