This wonderful Mirhan Mesrobian creation has rather sleek lines, with a mix of horizontality & verticality that seems to say “Moderne.” But what is going on at the entrance? It is a case of full-blown exoticism, which is also very Moderne. The porte-cochere is graced with limestone friezes and sculptures of fantastical creatures and remarkable opaque lamps. One commentator has described them as “lighthouse beacons” guiding residents safely back home in their Packards and LaSalles.
