14 - 1110-1116 Abbot Kinney

1110-1116 Abbot Kinney Boulevard exemplifies significant contributions as a rare, intact example of early commercial development located along the former Venice Short Line and for its association with postwar musical and visual arts in Venice, especially the emergence of West Coast Minimalism and the Light and Space movements.

Starting in the 1960s, the building was occupied by various post-war period artists and musicians. In 1967, architect Frank Gehry designed a live/work plan for 1110 which has continuously served as the studio and residence of artist Frederick Eversley since 1969.

Rectangular in plan, the subject property is of brick construction with a flat roof. The primary, north-facing elevation features six distinct storefronts with divided-lite transoms and mostly off- centered entries. All the storefronts are wood, except for a replacement steel frame storefront at 1116. The façade has buff-colored fluted brick with white-glazed brick window surrounds and a geometric motif in buff glazed brick along the roofline.

1110-1116 Abbot Kinney Boulevard became Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #1176 on 2/6/2019.
