LA architect: Eugene Weston III

Last week's LA Times House&Garden section had a great article about an Eagle Rock home designed by architect, Eugene Weston III who at 82, is one of the last surviving masters of the 1950's post-and-beam construction in Southern California. The article features the current home of Scott Nadeau, who lives there with his wife and son, ever since they purchased it in 2003.

(images from LAtimes.com) The home was originally designed for Norman Bilderback, who was a director of design at LACMA in 1953. Weston was only 28 when he designed it. What's really great about this story is that Nadeau ended up being able to contact Weston, and the two have now striked up a great friendship. Apparently, the friendship has now blossomed into a business relationship. Nadeau is the owner of Silverlake's Ten10, and is reissuing a series of outdoor furniture that Weston designed in the 50's.
