    The Architect Makes the Difference

    We were in a gorgeous spanish yesterday just west of Hancock Park. We see a lot of pretty spanish homes but this one just felt right. Could have been the meticulous restoration efforts on the part of the owner but also obvious is the deft hand of Los Angeles based architect Paul Williams (1894-1980).

    We talk about Williams regularly – having designed over 2,000 private homes and a number of public buildings (he helped design the futuristic Theme Building at LAX and did Saks BH) we come across his work fairly often. He is also the architect who reportedly learned to draft upside down so white clients wouldn’t have to sit side-by-side with their black architect and he could wow them from across the table – not an easy anecdote to forget.

    Williams worked in a range of styles. Here is some examples currently on the market:
