Redwine Building, Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #1114
Built: 1931 Declared: 05/18/2016
Built in the heart of Hollywood in 1931, the Redwine Building was designed by architect Richard D. King for Los Angeles attorney Hi-ram G. Redwine. King worked closely on the property with his client to produce a building that would best express Redwine’s history and professional success; cast concrete artwork relating to Redwine’s law practice (an open book is flanked by a certificate on the left, gavel on the right, and balanced scales below) appear above the building’s entry. The building retains many character-defining features of the Art Deco style including the stepped pyramidal tower, three-tiered inset entryway, and decorative grille work.
