Meyers House, 1607 Angelus Avenue, Raphael Soriano, Architect
*NOTE: There seems to be a bit of confusion about this house. It is listed in ‘An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles’ by David Gebhard & Robert Winter, published by Gibbs Smith, however, the definite book on Soriano’s work, ‘Rapahel Soriano’ by Wolfgang Wagener published by Phaidon Press, lists the Meyers House at 850 Avenue 37 in Los Angeles. Surely there is some explanation for this discrepancy! Did J.A. Meyers have Soriano build two houses for him, one in Silver Lake and one in Eagle Rock? While there is no mention of the Angelus house in Wagener’s book, I was able to obtain a copy of the building permit which verifies the fact that Raphael Soriano did indeed apply for a building permit for 1607 Angelus Avenue for a J.A. Meyers in 1938.
Here we see the Music Room from the exterior. Note the Streamline Moderne detail of the iron pipe railing following the curve of the structure. The Music Room was the focal point of the house, and commanded a view of Silver Lake reservoir and the San Gabriel Mountains in the distance.
