Ray Kappe, AIA – Naples Island Remodel

IMG_1254-1

I wish I knew more about this Mid-Century Modern, set along the seaside canals of Naples Island in Long Beach, California. Built in the 1940s, the home was remodeled in 1956 by renowned Long Beach architect Ray Kappe.

I’ve always paused and admired it since I was a kid growing up in the neighborhood back in the 60s/70s.

Modernist George Montierth, AIA

 

Another personal waterfront favorite along the canals of Naples Island in Long Beach, California is this 1948 George Montierth-designed mid-century modernist.

Surprisingly, not much is published about the locally prolific Long Beach, California architect, who not only designed a number of timeless buildings from his offices in the Ocean Center Building in downtown Long Beach in the 1940s and 50s, but also mentored several young architects who went on to higher fame.
