#Throwback: When looking at Chase Knolls Garden Apartments (Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #683) in Sherman Oaks, we’re transported to a time of playing outside with friends and apple pies cooling in the window. These garden style apartments were designed by architects Heth Wharton and Ralph Vaughn between 1947 and 1949. The complex arranges the residential buildings around open courtyards, keeping automobile traffic and storage to the perimeter of the complex. The buildings of Chase Knolls have a simple and utilitarian modern appearance, with elegant horizontal lines, steel casement windows, and wide overhanging eaves, shading upper windows from the hot California sun.
