Canadian born architect W. Earl Wear moved to Southern California in the 50s. According to his obituary, “in his work Earl followed the principals of Frank Lloyd Wright‘s Organic Architecture and during his time in the Los Angeles area he designed and built nine original residences.”

Just like his idol, Wear utilizes concrete blocks, floor to ceiling glass, and redwood. During a restoration the integrity of the architect’s precise angles, graduated layers, corner windows, and built-ins were maintained. Even the geometric block fireplace in the living room surrounded by concrete, redwood ceilings, and cork floors still exists.
