Balboa Highlands Eichler Homes Team
Top Notch Architects
The Eichler phenomenon could not have happened without a tremendous amount of teamwork by some very talented people. Aligning himself with a stable of progressive, empathic architects – first the San Francisco firm of Anshen & Allen, then Jones & Emmons in Los Angeles, and later Claude Oakland also from the Bay area- Eichler realized his dream, styled with imagination. As regional architecture designed for the Bay Area’s benign climate, their house designs befuddled the traditional masses. They emphasized boldness, change, and optimism through indoor-outdoor living, walls of glass, central atrium, and radiant-heat floors in earlier models. They included under-floor forced air and heat in later models found in Southern California.
