Project Files I. 1944-1995

Physical Description: 28.0 Linear feet

Scope and Contents note

This series contains the project drawings, a small number of photographs, and a few project files, in 28 linear feet. The majority of the collection consists of architectural drawings, in rough alphabetical order. There are very few photographs or project files in this collection.
The projects date from circa 1945 to 1995 and include residential and commercial designs in the Los Angeles area. Many of Ehmcke's clients commissioned multiple projects. For example, Ehmcke designed more than a dozen projects each for Lanz of California, and for Werner Scharff, a developer in the Venice area of Los Angeles.
