Beaux Arts Style Architecture
Society architects from the 1880s to the 1920s often studied at Ecole des Beaux Arts in France, thus the name, Beaux Arts style. Classical forms and proportions were the basis of these elaborately decorated and embellished structures that held so much appeal to the industrialists desiring lavish homes.
4101 Beverly Drive
The home at 4101 Beverly designed in 1915 expresses the exuberant grandeur of Beaux Arts mansions. 4101 Beverly is still the centerpiece of Highland Park, across from the Country Club on Beverly and Preston. Italianate influence is seen in the colonnaded second story porch and entry and the flat roof lined with balustrades.
