The FoGH Annual Meeting will include a docent led tour of the Lanterman House, the meeting program, presentation by guest speaker Jennifer Trotoux and lunch on the terrace.

ABOUT THE HOUSE: Completed in 1915, the Lanterman House (or “El Retiro,” as it was then known) was built by the second generation of La Cañada’s founding family, the Lantermans. Dr. Roy Lanterman commissioned architect A. L. Haley to design a fireproof bungalow of reinforced concrete for his family.

There are many arts and crafts elements to the U-shaped house, including 32 pairs of french doors, which provide natural light and heat and make all the rooms accessible to the interior patio and trellis-shaped perimeter walkway. The house retains its exquisite original interiors and furnishings, including elaborate hand-painted wall and ceiling ornamentation.

The house’s entire second floor is devoted to a grand ballroom, and the interior of the house retains its original furnishings and is elaborately decorated with detailed plant and flower motifs, represented in painted ornament, wallpapers, and light fixtures.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Jennifer Trotoux is an associate with Architectural Resources Group, where she has worked as an architectural historian and historic preservation planner since 2006. A native Pasadenan, she was educated in art and architectural history at Scripps College and the University of Chicago and later taught architectural history at Woodbury University.
