Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2789
Significance: Los Angeles based architect Paul R. Williams designed the two-and-one-half-story, single-family, Georgian Revival style residence for electrical engineer Morris Landau and his wife Mabel. Situated at 638 North Faring Road, the house was built in 1936, on Lot 8, Tract 8236 of Holmby Hills, in the West Los Angeles District. The property physically manifests a particular phase in the development of Williams' architectural career: residential. His characteristic style and architectural quality is reflected in the overall design of the residence. William's design is effectively complemented by Edward Huntsman-Trout's landscape design.
