Paul Williams Homes for Sale | Trailblazing architect Paul Williams (1894-1980), whose career spans over five decades and includes more than 3,000 buildings in Southern California was raised in Los Angeles after moving here with his family from Memphis. He became the first African American member admitted to the American Institute of Architects (AIA), as well as the recipient of the Gold Medal, the AIA’s highest honor, posthumously in 2017. Paul Revere Williams, known as “Hollywood’s Architect,” designed glamorous residences for numerous celebrities, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Lon Chaney, and Barbara Stanwyck among them.

He was a master of many period architectural styles, from English Tudor to Spanish Colonial, giving them a quintessential California feel, through an integration to the outdoors via pools, terraces and garden rooms. Williams developed the ability to sketch his concepts for homes and buildings upside down to accommodate white clients who might not want to sit next to him, his homes possess a characteristic grace and style unlike any other architect, whether it be in the curve of a staircase or the expansiveness of a grand entry. Williams was also involved in the conceptual design of many commercial landmark buildings throughout Los Angeles including the space-age Theme Building at LAX, the Shrine Auditorium and the Crescent Wing of the Beverly Hills Hotel.
