West Hollywood and Venice have been awash in modern architecture; but in the Valley, the ornate, garish, cheesy and trollop-type condominium, landscaped with every palm and perennial known to mankind, has been the norm.
At 12504 W. Woodbridge St. at Whitsett, just south of Moorpark, a new modern apartment house-all right angles and green materials- is going up. Conceived in the heady days of real estate, 36 months ago, it is nearing completion now, and will offer 12 units for sale.
I spoke to the young developer, on site, who invited me to return in a few weeks to inspect the completed building. He told me the name of the architect, who I regretfully have forgotten.
