Every now and then, a project comes along that is not simply a “big job” but a true feather in the cap for our firm.
Earlier this year, we started work on a major re-imagining on one of the most iconic private homes in Hancock Park (a part of town that is known for iconic homes). Designed and built by preeminent African-American, Los Angeles-based architect Paul R. Williams for the famed Hollywood screenwriter Billy Wilder (Some Like it Hot) in 1929, the home’s renovation includes 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 4,428 square feet and a brand new indoor/outdoor conservatory that will be the stuff of Gatsby.
We’re calling the design “Hollywood Glam Deco,” which means that everything is inspired by old Hollywood and the glamour of the 1930s. We will include many nods to art deco forms and an overall luxe feel throughout. Think Joan Crawford meets 2014!
You can get a peek at Phase 1 of this project in this article from JustLuxe. And if you have any questions about the details or the finishes, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org – I would love to tell you more about my process.
In closing, in a career that spanned thousands of homes from the 1920s to the 1960s, Paul Williams also built homes for Hollywood legends Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Lon Chaney and many others. He is a giant in my field and I feel so privileged to have been entrusted with the re-envisioning of the interior of this particular home.
