Wallace Neff: Backwards and Forwards
SAHSCC Tour
Saturday, April 01, 2006

Join other SAH/SCC members and friends Saturday, April 1st, for a tour of gracious period-revival homes by Wallace Neff (1895-1982). Organized by SAH/SCC Acting President Merry Ovnick, the tour takes place Saturday afternoon, from 1PM to 5PM, in the Pasadena and San Marino area.

Among the sites featured on the tour is the Doane house, 1924, illustrated here, along with other sites to be announced. Neffs historicist work of the 1920s through the 40s is noted for its successful blend of intimate and formal spaces, the integration of references to a romanticized past, and an attention to contemporary functionality. On the one hand, these homes exude gracious and hospitable charm; on the other, they offer homeowners a secluded retreat from the world outside.

The day will include a presentation on Neff both the architecture and the man by Diane Kanner, author of "Wallace Neff and the Grand Houses of the Golden State" (Monacelli Press, 2005). Learn more about Wallace Neff
