Lloyd Wright, Architect
The Calori House, 1926
3021 E. Chevy Chase Drive, Glendale, CA
Glendale Historic Register #23: I like to think that Lloyd Wright’s early association with L.A.’s music and theater scene contributed to his undogmatic approach to style. A great actor was still a great actor, even in a different set of clothes. Lloyd designed the first shell of the Hollywood Bowl in 1924. Two years later its stepped design elements are incorporated in the welcoming entry of Calori House, and its modern break the box stepped open plan interior, so appropriate for today’s casual lifestyles, are distinctly Wrightian sheathed in the Spanish Deco Style. Masterfully sited on a rare flat shelf above the canyon floor, the residence opens to spacious patios, and in the

Vista Pines Estate
2775 W Vista Pines Trail, Prescott, AZ
Recognized as one of the top 100 architects in the United States, Mickey Muennig exemplifies organic, eco forward design. His commitment to interlinking ecology and nature with the surrounding environment highly influenced the “organic architecture movement” pioneered by Frank Lloyd Wright. By casting aside traditional straight line, right angle, box build styles, he created a following drawn to his curvilinear, pioneering design style focused on positioning the home to blend with the surrounding environment. Using earth materials and recycled products, Muennig’s structures are designed to withstand harsh elements by incorporating wood, water, concrete, glass, steel, and even sod.

Ed Niles, FAIA
The De Muri Resicence, 1979
19 Buckskin Road, Bell Canyon, CA
Great residential architecture begins with a close study of the chosen site. Here in the gated equestrian community of Bell Canyon, Niles found a flat pad atop a rise, screened from the street by huge boulders. From here one enjoys sweeping views south of steep canyon walls, the forested canyon below & a cinematic landscape of open hillsides, oaks, big skies and impressive rock formations. With space to spare on a 1.3 acre lot, Niles extended the house along a single axis, with a one-story, transparent kitchen-living-dining pavilion. From the midpoint entry the structure stretches out to the west, with 3 bedrooms accessed by a sheltered, north-facing all-glass corridor and a master
