Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue (1869-1924), a New York-based architect, worked with his long-time, local associate, Carleton Monroe Winslow, Sr., (1876-1946) on the design of the Herbert Coppell House. (Winslow acted as "Supervising Architect" on the job.) The landscape architect Paul Thiene (1880-1971) designed the landscaping. The photo illustrates a water rill created by Thiene.

This extensive, Spanish Colonial Revival residence bore Goodhue's spare decorative touch, save for occasional details which were rendered with precision and historical accuracy. In the Coppell House, the smooth clarity of stucco wall surfaces contrasted with the delicacy of the Iberian ironwork and the quatrefoil, Baroque window.
