1709 Silverwood Terrace, Los Angeles, CA 90026 - William Kesling, Architect

The Collins House by William Kesling, which just came on the market, is among a small collection of Streamline Moderne style homes designed by him that can be found at southeast end of Silver Lake. Though not formally trained, Kesling proved to be a very productive architect form 1934 to 1962 and had his office in Silver Lake. In fact, he probably walked to the Collins House from his office, which was located below it at 1639 Silver Lake Boulevard.  With their rounded geometries, facades with horizontal bands of windows, and curved railings and staircases, all of his homes have an undeniable sense of "cool" to them.  And yet they were simultaneously designed to be affordable.
