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 American Institute of Architects, Los Angeles Chapter, Dworsky’s tower provides its residents a luxury experience that includes twenty-four hour concierge service, valet parking, tennis court, gym, and rooftop pool. Unit 603 features full-height glass walls, updated kitchen and baths, two bedroom suites, two balconies, hardwood floors in most of the unit, and built-in hidden wet bar, 1,607 square feet.
