Building History

The architectural designer Jacob "Jock" Peters (1889-1934) designed this residence for the real estate broker William Lingenbrink (born 08/20/1870 in Viersen, Germany), completed in 1930. Lingenbrink, though born in Germany, became a Dutch citizen when his father underwent naturalizations there. He immigrated to the US in 1882, landing in New York, NY, from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. During the the 1880s he lived in the Saint Louis, MO, area, before relocating to CA on 01/09/1923. (See, Source Citation National Archives and Records Administration (NARA); Washington, D.C.; NAI Number: 138; Record Group Title: M1524; Record Group Number: Naturalization Records of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, Central Division (Los Angeles), 1887-1940, accessed 04/08/2021.)

In 1936, Lingenbrink and his wife Frances Streeter Lingenbrink (born 12/25/1882 in MO-d. 10/01/1969 in CA) operated an art goods store at 7057 Hollywood Boulevard. The city directory listed their home address as being 2001 Whitley Avenue. (See Los Angeles, California, City Directory, 1936, p. 1137.)

The Lingenbrinks married in 1910 in MO.

Building Notes

William Lingenbrink had a deep interest in modern design. He later worked with architect Rudolph Schindler (1887-1953) on two retail store projects, the Modern Creators Shops (West Hollywood, CA, 1936-1938) and the Lingenbrink Shops on Ventura Boulevard (1936–1938 and 1946), Studio City, Los Angeles, CA.
