Casa Laguna Takes Your Breath Away (a history of a 1928 spanish colonial revival)

I'm gonna give you a little history on one of my favorite historic buildings in LA, if you know me you know there are many, but most designed by my favorite architect Arthur Zwebell, I will one day live in an apartment or condo designed by him, moreover an entire building, there are six, so the odds are in my favor with some serious luck....

Casa Laguna Takes Your Breath Away

Architecture from the 1920s and 1930s in Los Angeles is museum-esque; a remarkable work of art that has been well preserved and is appreciated still today. With ornate detail and comprised of beautiful materials such as; spacious courtyards, unique water fountains, red tile roofs, two-story soaring living rooms, hand painted Spanish tiles, perfect plank hardwood floors, meticulously crafted fireplaces, perfect wrought iron detail, and immaculate windows; these historic Spanish buildings of the golden age will take one’s breath away! Angelenos are superbly lucky to have many remarkable representations of such history still standing! One such husband wife architecture/design team that made a strong imprint of this rich Spanish influenced style and pioneered the courtyard style architecture are Arthur & Nina Zwebell, who created six landmark courtyard buildings in Los Angeles in the 1920s. The Casa Laguna, built in 1928 by unmatchable architects Arthur & Nina Zwebell, located in Hollywood, CA, is a magnificent building in the Spanish Colonial revival style.

Zwebell’s Casa Laguna is a strong example of the Spanish Colonial Revival Style of Los Angeles architecture. This breathtaking 18-unit courtyard structure is particularly of the Andalusian influence, strongly influenced by the region of Spain. Built in 1928, the last of the Zwebell’s esteemed courtyard projects, the Casa Laguna shows strong elements of the 1920s Spanish movement in California. Their work in Los Angeles was limited to the decade of the 1920s, and in that time period they created six remarkable creations, most of which are cultural historical monuments today.

The Zwebell pair came to Los Angeles from the Midwest, first to visit in 1917. Then four years later in 1921, they moved to LA permanently bringing along their nest egg of $35,000. Remarkably, they lacked formal architectural training, but in 1923 built their first courtyard apartment building, the Primavera in West Hollywood. Over the course of the next five years the Zwebells embarked on a prolific careers as developers of unwaveringly exquisite courtyard apartments. To Follow the Primavera were; the Patio del Moro in 1925, the couple’s crowning achievement the Andalusia in 1926, the Rhonda in 1927, and completed their portfolio in 1928 with the El Cabrillo and finally the Casa Laguna.

The materials used in the construction of Casa Laguna, seemingly rare today; they were perfectly combined to create a rich and awe-striking art piece of incredible detail. In the 20s it also seemed Los Angeles had the most talented artisans and craftsman, which utilized such materials to their fullest potential. A grand hallmark noticed in this Spanish Revival style was the ornate hand painted tiles work, used on interior and exterior staircases, as well as interior courtyard fountains, in kitchens, bathrooms, fireplaces, etc. Additionally the use of arches was very prominent in both the courtyards and the interior architecture. The Zwebell’s also utilized immaculate windows, both round-ached and floor to ceiling pained French windows and doors, traditionally in a turquoise green hue. The use of ironwork was another hallmark of the Zwebell’s, the Spanish architecture, and of course, the Casa Laguna. The building made lavish use of such decorative ironwork via its; railings, window grills, hinges, door and gate locksets, weathervanes, and most notably the lighting fixtures, as immaculate sconces and chandeliers abound! The use of wood is also profound, from the perfect hardwood floors, to the beautiful beamed wood ceilings, and even the intricate carvings on interior and closet doors. Another beautiful feature of many interior units in Casa Laguna are the fireplaces, with gorgeous stonework, brick decorations, and / or perfectly arranged Spanish tiling. The Zwebell trademarks of an exterior fireplace and water fountain are also eminent in this historic building! Another interesting construction feature is double-storied roofed gallery, utilizing stone columns and a heavy beam. My favorite feature of five of the building’s unit’s interiors is the two-story townhouse utilizing both the hand-painted Spanish tiles along with the ironwork along the staircase rail and second story balcony! Some of these units have ceilings up to 20 feet high, with the gorgeous staircase and balcony overlooking, coupled with fireplace down below- a truly betaking sight that is seldom replicated today!

The interior and exterior of Casa Laguna are gorgeous, crafted with exquisite attention to detail. The notable materials used on this remarkable courtyard building include; hand painted Spanish tiles, pristine hardwood floors, timber beamed ceilings, certain red tiles, ornate iron work, and original beautifully sculptured lighting fixtures etc. The exterior colors of the building as well as its phenomenal courtyard are very bold, in a mustard yellow tone! The accents are green. It is possible that in its original incarnation the buildings paint was a lighter yellow or possibly a white or tan tone. All many of these elements were brought over to California from the influence of the Spaniards, most specifically of the area of Andalusia. There was as also much Moorish influence in this time, reminiscent in the Casa Laguna and even more so, other Zwebell buildings.

This building is very ornate, attentive to detail, and an exquisite showpiece. Due to its time of being built, 1928, prior to the Second World War and the great depression, Angelenos were still into this type of showcasing architecture. Similarly, after World War I many people had money to spend, and wanted to enjoy and live life to the fullest, hence the immaculate designs that came out in the decade following. The design of the courtyard building was also very appropriate to southern California with its warm climate; utilizing much creative outdoor space to create as a huge community courtyard, outdoor fireplace, common fountain area, many private balconies, decks, and patios. The late 1920’s in Los Angeles were a very glamorous time, with the film industry growing and many of such buildings were original built for studios to house silent films stars during film production. Arts & architecture were still very decorative and clearly separated the have’s from the have not’s. Unfortunately the Casa Laguna was the Zwebell’s last masterpiece, for after the complete crash of the private housing market in 1929, they turned to other occupations. Then came the Great Depression and such styles faded while the mechanistic modernist aesthetic was on the rise. Similarly with rising land value, such spacious courtyard utilizes much land, for a decorative realizing interior space became unrealistic and therefore were seldom made again. Shortly after this style changed and was toned down slightly with the art deco period. But until then, the Spanish Colonial revival period spared no details and turned out some of the most fascinating architecture and design Los Angeles has ever seen!

In closing, one can see the great beauty, unique architectural design, incredible craftsmanship, and finest material and attention to detail used in this Spanish colonial revival architectural style. The Casa Laguna was the last great masterpiece by husband and wife architect/ designer pair Arthur & Nina Zwebell. They made a huge imprint on Los Angeles’ architectural history and were the primary innovators of the Andalusian courtyard style that became so popular and thank Goodness, well preserved. Their talents and creativity go beyond measure as exemplified in this remarkable 18 unit apartment building / courtyard dwelling!

Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe>Never Before Seen Photo Unveiled at Art + Artifact Gallery TONIGHT (Tues June 1)

For Immediate Release

The Original Secret Photo of Marilyn Monroe and President John F. Kennedy Finally Unveiled on June 1, 2010 at
Art & Artifact: The Photographic Art Center in Los Angeles, CA

For the very first time, Art & Artifact: The Photographic Art Center and Keya
Gallery / Keya Morgan Collection, will unveil the only photograph ever known
of President John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe to the public.

This historically significant photograph was taken by JFK’s personal photographer,
Cecil Stoughton, on May 19, 1962 at the home of Arthur and Matilda Krim on 33 East
69th Street, New York, NY, a few short hours after Marilyn’s legendary performance of
“Happy Birthday Mr. President” at Madison Square Garden.

“This is the only existing photo of Marilyn Monroe with either Kennedy Brother, since the others were confiscated by the Secret Service and the FBI.”
-Keya Morgan, Keya Gallery

The image captures the private relationship between the two historical icons and serendipitously aligns it with one of the most memorable performances ever made by
Marilyn. Both of these shooting stars were soon destined to burn out, Marilyn within a
mere 8 to 9 weeks after the photograph was taken and John F. Kennedy just a short
18 months later.

A single edition of The Secret Photograph was presented as a personal gift from Keya
Morgan to Michael Jackson, leaving only 9 from the limited edition of 10, 30”x 30”, photographs remaining in the world.

During the exhibition that opens June 1, 2010 (Marilyn Monroe’s birthday), Art & Artifact
in collaboration with Keya Gallery/Keya Morgan Collection, will showcase The Secret Photograph in 30”x 30” silver gelatin fiber print, limited edition of 10, plus a series of 10
separate limited edition, silver gelatin photographs, 11x14, taken by acclaimed
photographer Irving Steinberg of Marilyn backstage at Madison Square Garden in all her glory… only moments after her stunning performance at JFK’s 45th birthday celebration.

Among these images is an incredibly revealing shot of Marilyn, fully showcasing the gown, additional shots of her in the limousine as she departed the venue and finally,
a beautiful close-up of Ms. Monroe that quintessentially captures all that was magical about this 20th-Century goddess.

LA's Key to New Music>>>Introducing QUADRON

So, Music is my Life....or a large & inspirational & mood altering part of it! SO I cant help but share this amazing & sultry beautiful new Danish group QUADRON!

Its a real genre defying act and mood creating, consisting of lush beats from Robin Hannibal coupled with Coco's beautiful vocals. If I had to pin it I'd say soul fusion, mixing a bit of jazzy vintage soul r&b with a bit of British styled electronic production and gorgeous instrumentation! And I have to thank my friend and amazing talent Aaron Byrd of KCRW for turning me on to such a life-changing group. To be completely honest, and yes I have always been obsessive with my music but, I have listened to the BEST song "Horse" about 250x since first hearing it 48 hours ago. When I'm not listening to it, I still here it or am longing to hear it again, or sing it, its interestingly perfectly in my range, and oh I wish I sounded as sweet as Coco ;) No joke. Its that good. Well the whole album, is and I'd urge you to buy it...but as a taste, here are in my opinion the two best songs of their debut album "Quadron", 'Horse' and 'Average Fruit'! As it stands local indie heavyweight record label Plug Research — which has put out albums from Flying Lotus, Shafiq Husayn, Milosh, Mia Doi Todd and countless others — is now releasing the album with distribution.

And if you become addicted as I did, and I hope you do.... so then you will want to see them LIVE in LA (yes they are from Denmark HAHA)....Mr Byrd along with KCRW, is producing a show + live DJ set/w/ vocalist, on Wed April 14th at Zanzibar and you can get presale tix for this double banger, only $12 here....


HORSE (my fave cut on the album)

The Face of LA Nightlife Is Changing. Welcome La Descarga, East Hollywood Cuban Rum Paradise

For the past five or so years, I've had the dream/near reality of creating my own restaurant/lounge. In the past few weeks, I've taken steps to begin this process. It's ironic, just RECENTLY a few gifted and talented people around us, have begun to create what I have long envisioned, what I want(ed) to give Angelenos. An experience. A theatrical and memorable nightlife escapade. Pretty much nothing like anything that has went on in Los Angeles in the past almost ten years, if really ever! For me the last time I felt anything like that, aside from my own 1920s (ERA) themed parties was at Las Palmas in say 2000/2001~ Again, recently this has began to change (thank God). The few experiential places I can say are on par with my passion and vision include; Voyeur (my original concept/idea), the Tar Pit, The Edison, and most recently, LA DESCARGA!

Opening about three weeks ago in east Hollywood, La Descarga is definitely located in a stretch of town most socialites/hipsters/Hollywood types wouldn't necessarily venture into, the 1100 North block of Western Avenue, wedged between the 101 freeway and Santa Monica Blvd. Definitely a lower income neighborhood booming with culture and crime alike, its fitting, its raw and gritty, it makes for the perfect backdrop as you begin your uncertain & exciting journey to CUBA!

You would never know it was there, if it weren't for the word of mouth mentions from nightlife aficionados, ok and some pretty amazing press has surfaced, but this quaint multi-roomed and multi-leveled bar is quite the hole in the wall, definitely not broadcasted as the next Hollywood hotspot, which makes it all the better. From the front, its actually all gated up, as it should be...You feel kinda on edge and curious from the outskirts, just as one might feel if really setting foot into old Havana. A tall dark and a handsome gentleman of Caribbean English decent greets you. His name is Vladamir. He asks who you are there to see or if you have a 'reservation' In my case he expected us, I, being the party planner, and my guest Dean, being the birthday man of honor. He then radios upstairs, gets word back, and then asks us to follow him up the stairs. We are a little confused what is going on, thou excited where he might be taking us, up a steep and dingy staircase. Then we're transported into a beautiful room, almost a mix between a foreign hotel room and a passport office, but its sexy, its brimming with culture and a mysterious allure. Its very Cuban, as is the beautiful lady, seated at a vintage desk cum phonograph record player, who takes our names and introduces herself. You can't help but notice the intense and sudden onset of HEAT, its intentional, its authentic Cuba all around! She then pushes apart some garments that seem to be part of an antique wardrobe's decor and WA-LA...we are making a grand entrance down an aged spiral staircase entering the depths of CUBA a la LA DESCARGA!. Its like your staring in your own movie, a guest star in the live show! Bravo folks bravo. The initial awe and wow factor is unparalleled in LA nightlife, that I'm aware of. If anything feel similar, its "The Edison" thou of a different place and time, my forever favorite, 1920s Los Angeles!

The decor is charming, authentic, and beautifully vintage (thou again 3 weeks new). The custom mixologist designed drinks (a la Steve Livigni and Pablo Moix) are clever and tasty. Also innovative and breaking the mold to see a rum bar, after many a wine bar, even the vodka bar (Lubitsch) and the tequila bar (Scorpion), the Houston brothers enter some uncharted territory here, but it goes with the theme and locale ever perfectly! There are over 70 rums available, many aged or super hard to find, even a rum flight is available, how exciting, and oh-how-drunk one came become after a 'rum-tasting' LOL! After trying the daiquiri, the punch bowl (unique, but super hard to serve with its giant ice cube and tiny ladle), and the famed mojito, the daiquiri, which is a mix of Diplomatico anejo rum, lime and sugar, remains my favorite! The staff are friendly, attractive and definitely in character! There are even a few real Cubans on the staff or in the cast rather...and a few that could pass for it! I loved that.

The highlight for me is the live entertainment, a very unique and highly skilled quartet of Cuban jazz musicians play on the mezzanine above. Its very eloquent how they are positioned on a second floor high above the audience or bar rather, while the dancers come down the stairs, interact and dance with audience members and even perform on the bar (Coyote Ugly esuq isn't it). Its quite the spectacle, yet so unexpected, subtly can indeed be key! They were just phenomenal; performing a set every hour, accompanied by two fabulous and very interactive dancers, one of which ended up adding fire throwing/eating/twirling to her Meringue salsa samba-esque routine!

Every detail was planned and executed to a T. Owners/designers; twin brothers Mark & Johnnie Houston impressed me as they themselves know, no one ever really does. There are two lovely rooms, very different, but tied together so perfectly. The first is the two story room you arrive at upon entry, its small holds about 100 people, and then you walk thru a short narrow candle-lit hallway to arrive on the cigar room to accommodate about 50 guests, which is a (barely) open air smoking room, complete with rolled Cuban cigars available for purchase! From the authentic Cuban wall paper in the restrooms, to the pieces of the wood beamed ceilings unevenly exposed, to the vintage lamps and deco pieces strategically placed throughout the bar, to the distressed paint, to the antique scones and chandeliers from various eras, and not to forget the show-box of Cuban memorabilia on the patio AKA cigar room, it's just a work of art! The vibe is perfect, the experience seems real, the sights and sounds of this scene truly transport you to another time and place, to me, the way nightlife should be; experiential and talent/music based!

I feel inspired and affected, quite enamored if you will; by what I and almost every guest in attendance would agree upon first walking into the bar, left us awestruck. To affect people, to surprise them, to move them as they would by a piece of art, a song, a film, a dance routine...to me that's nightlife. That's the nightlife I will create and a few others are raising the bar in Los Angeles. Its a must see. Rated 9.7 from yours truly LA's KEY!
