nyberg bissner

This house looks like it was designed by the firm of Nyberg & Bissner. A twisted sister twin of this house on Stanford in Arcadia just sold for about $ 850,000.00. Smaller lot but it was in very good condition and had been PUBLISHED in 1963.

I was out to see Lloyd Wrights place out there ( east side ) and saw the Christ Park in the north hills distances. I will stop by to see it up close next time. Yucca has some surprising mid-century modern works. A...

Saw this place today and it is very nice. The architects who designed it were Burge and Roach. One of the units in the complex was published as Home Of The Week. I think it was this one.

fowler

The house used in Hanging Up and another by David Fowler were featured in the Julius Shulman book M.R. As of a couple years ago I think Fowler was still alive but not responding to questions about his architectural work.

Josquin Yes, if you get a chance, please ask Karl about his other houses. I was told there is a " TWIN SISTER " house to 748 in the Glendale area and I'd like to find others too. Karl worked for Welton Becket and it would be nice to know what projects he worked on.

BOOK

Dilettante, What you have done is just fantastic. If you might donate one book to a public library with the intent to make it avaiable to all through the Inter-Library Loan Program would be much appricated.
