Walter Sidney Orme, Architect

Streamline Moderne Duplex, 1937

Sold

Description

“Streamlining is the first new and uniquely American approach that the public could associate with progress and a better life,” declared Henry Dreyfuss, designer of the famous 20th Century Limited streamlined locomotive that linked Los Angeles and New York in the late 1930s. Architect Walter Sidney Orme’s nod to both Streamline Moderne and Art Deco is evident in this 1937 duplex. Orme makes a strong statement here with aerodynamic exterior curves, long horizontal lines and grooves in the white stucco banding and eyebrow black trim, glass brick, and porthole windows in front and rear doors. The interior’s expressive art deco detailing includes zigzag tile patterns, original built-in shelving nooks and period lighting fixtures. Each unit has approximately 1600 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, expansive kitchen, lower unit with formal dining room and upper unit with open plan eating area, and a fireplace in the main living space.
