Thoughts on the Contributions of Architect Bertram C. Hill
Bertram Hill designed in 1927 one of the most imposing houses on Swiss Avenue at 5907 Swiss. His use of steel beams in the structure, 25 stained glass windows and doors and elaborate mosaic tile in the detailing created both a solid structure and elaborate example of his ability. You can also see examples of his work at 5619, 5711 and 6014 Swiss Avenue and 6926 Westlake. In 1928, he designed 5736 Swiss Avenue where you can see a more effusive use of brick and stone and the magnificent Rookwood tile sunroom and fountain.
