WHAT MAKES THIS A BUNGALUX
Loads of potential
- • A History Lesson: This house was designed by Paul Williams, one of Southern California's most notable architects. Williams designed the homes of numerous stars including Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz, Lon Chaney, and Charles Correll.
- • Williams, an African American, was an outstanding draftsman and perfected the skill of rendering drawings "upside down." This skill was developed so that his clients (who may have been uncomfortable sitting next to a black architect) could see the drawings rendered right side up across the table from him.
- • Some of Williams' most notable buildings include: The redesign of the Beverly Hills Hotel, Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills, the Jet-Age Theme Building at Los Angeles International Airport, Los Angeles County Courthouse, Shrine Auditorium, and La Concha Motel (Nevada). He also collaborated with A. Quincy Jones on projects in Palm Springs, including the Palm Springs Tennis Club, the Town & Country and Romanoff's on the Rocks.
- • Williams designed over 2,000 private homes, most of which were in Los Angeles. Williams famously remarked upon the bitter irony of the fact that most of the homes he designed, and whose construction he oversaw, were on parcels whose deeds included segregation covenants barring blacks from purchasing them.
