Ming-Li Lowe Studio / Residence  
308 Venice WAY, VENICE, CA

Designed and built by award-winning architect, artist, filmmaker, and educator David Ming-Li Lowe, this rare Artist-In-Residence compound, 3 blocks from the beach, has been completely renovated and outfitted with high-end fixtures and finishes, including a Boffi kitchen, providing an attractive integrated experience for the creative entrepreneur. As Gebhard and Winter noted in their classic Architectural Guidebook, you could easily drive by and not notice this building, but once it catches your eye, an exquisite attention to detail is readily apparent. The loft-like live/work space is defined by two mirrored 3-story buildings that secure the perimeter, sheltering a private inner courtyard that connects the two domains. From the front, a commercial storefront signals business activities within, while direct entry to the 3-car garage/workshop from the alley provides ample security. The two towers above hold separate Master Suites, with living room and kitchen on the middle level, connected by a hardwood deck suspended above the courtyard. The overall composition is a celebration of structural steel, inspired by predecessors like Craig Ellwood and Pierre Koenig, with exposed posts and beams, elegant cross bracing, and high-performance, energy-efficient, translucent Kalwall building panels interspersed with clear French doors and operable windows.

Vawter, John  
The Hill House  
201 S Coronado ST, LOS ANGELES, CA

A true and amazing California Craftsman home, the Frank C. Hill House has graced the corner of South Coronado and 2nd Street since 1910. One of the earliest projects of the Vawter and Walker architectural firm, this home has been featured in many Bungalow books and the catalog for the exhibition California 1910 which is considered influential to the reawakening of interest in American Arts and Crafts Movement as it relates to California.The all-redwood detail and finish are of exceptional quality and sophistication; the centerpiece of the home being the subtle and extraordinary design of the brick fireplace with its original and hand-carved sculptural panel that was created by John Stanbough Souther. Centered between two casement windows with large, built-in seats below them, this could be a wonderful gathering place for generations to come. The home is listed as Historic-Cultural Monument # 980 with the Cultural Heritage Commission of the City of Los Angeles.Now for the other side of the coin. As is often the case with a home that is over 100 years old, there is significant deferred maintenance on the property and for many buyers, it would not be worth the capital requirement to bring the home back to its former glory. The home sits on a 9,857 square foot lot that is zoned LAR3, so there are many paths available to prospective buyers of this proper
