Kenneth Wing, Sr. & Edward Killingsworth, F.A.I.A.

Dr. L.L. Cowley Residence, 1954


Long Beach, CA

SOLD

Dr. L.L. Cowley selected this sylvan grove of sycamores on over a third of an acre. From the exterior, the house retains the architectural elements that are a trademark of Kenneth S. Wing's beach aesthetic: board and batten siding, a front entrance that consists of a breezeway and courtyard built on descending levels, a highly articulated roof line, and mullioned and bay windows leading to the front entry. The interior's long expanses of glass, the brick fireplace and carefully scaled rooms overlooking the swimming pool were all done in a style that Killingsworth would become known for. With a formal dining room area, en suite master bedroom, two additional bedrooms and baths, the

Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect

The Winslow House, 1893


River Forest, IL

SOLD

As Frank Lloyd Wright's first independent commission, the William Winslow House served as a radical change to the traditional styled houses in the Oak Park/Forest River area of Chicago. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970, the Winslow House's imposing facade consists of Roman brick on the first floor and an ornamental frieze wrapping the second floor. The first and second floor elevations of the house are clearly delineated by a central ridge line which adds additional volume to the overall feel of the design. With its broad, hipped roof line, the home predates Wright's Prairie Style vernacular architecture which later dominated many of Wright's

Dan Dworsky, F.A.I.A.

Empire West Tower, 1964


Los Angeles, CA

SOLD

Dan Dworsky’s design of the award-winning Empire West Tower, 1964, is emblematic of late Modernism rendered by a master architect. The wide, deep balconies flanked by solid walls create a symmetrical rhythm of solid-void-solid that create a sculpted, muscular form that dominates the West Hollywood skyline. Dworsky further energized what might have been one large banal mass by indenting the building to appear to be two discreet towers. The architect’s ability to discipline form reflects his roots in influences in Early Modernists and his love of their ability to “clearly resolve” design issues. The recipient of numerous honors including awards from the Los Angeles Conservancy and the

James Delong, Architect

The Nowling Residence, 1962


La Habra Heights, CA

SOLD

Arguably, Frank Lloyd Wright's early work was the genesis of California's celebrated open plan modern living. Apprentice and Taliesin Fellow James De Long embraces the tradition at the Nowling Residence. The entertainment living spaces are carefully defined by fine cabinetry and built-ins, but flow one to the other, and outdoors to the pool and gardens which are set in an old avocado grove. The home is sited for both privacy, and to afford panoramic views across the City to the Ocean. The beauty of the design is not just for show: wide eaves protect the interiors from the summer sun while allowing the low winter sun to warm the interiors. The master bedroom suite commands the

Robert F. Gordon, Architect

Modern Living in Park-Like Setting


Altadena, CA

SOLD

Architects: Robert F. Gordon, 1949, Tim Andersen, 1975, Fung and Blatt, 2004

An archaic overhead street signal suspended over the intersection marks Chaney Trail. A block up the trail the vast insensible City sprawl abruptly ends. Stress withers as one passes the old Nuccio's Nursery, turns on to the private drive, then into the residence parking area beneath mature oaks. Stepping out of the car the California ideal of living in nature begins anew.

Always complementing Gordon's early modernist vision of naturally integrating building with the site, the residence has organically evolved: Tim Andersen's new entry and living space has expanded entertaining
