The Stimson House built in the 1890s was once considered as the costliest and most beautiful private residences in Los Angeles. The building resembles a medieval castle with brick chimneys popping out of it, and an ornate four-storey crannied tower on its north east corner. What was built for $150,000 cost at that time, the mansion became a spectacular landmark in the University Park neighbourhood of the city that many referred to as the Red House, pertaining to its red stone walls.
Designed by architect H. Carroll Brown, the house follows Richardsonian Romanesque style, with design features like rough-hewn stone, round headed arches, short columns, rows of arched or rectangular windows and an overall fortress quality.
Here, Dan Hogman turns to paper to do what he does best – sketching a vignette of architecture that catches his eyes. See this historic building getting made through Hogman’s effortless strokes.
