The year was 2006. The place was exclusive home on an acre of land in the Beverly Hills flats. The project was to design and create elegant lighting fixtures inspired by the creative vision of architect Wallace Neff. This scenario was the perfect opportunity for ADG lighting to collaborate with a discerning client/homeowner who had a distinct vision to carry on the long-standing design tradition of the original home. The cover photo reflects the Wallace Neff style of the home and prominently features one of our signature fixtures.
Our project home was originally designed by Wallace Neff, a Los Angeles based architect, who was largely responsible for creating the regional architectural style referred to as ‘California’ style. ADG Lighting was commissioned to design and manufacture specific lighting fixtures that reflected clearly the design inspiration of Wallace Neff. The home has signature Wallace Neff style design elements such as heavy wooden pocket doors, a massive stone fireplace and stenciled ceiling beams. Most notably, the home features a spectacular ceiling mural in the dome of the rotunda. The mural was created by renowned artist Richard Wyatt, whose work is prominently featured in Union Station, Los Angeles.
