The Abels – A Father and Son Who Shaped The Architectural Style of Laguna Beach

A Laguna Friends of Architecture Special Meetup

The Abels – A Father and Son who helped shape the architectural style of our fair city both past and present

Come join us for a presentation by Gregg Abel on his and his famed father, Chris Abel’s, work in designing and building homes and commercial centers in Laguna.

Between the two of them they have designed and built an impressive amount of homes in the community. Each one is unique in its own right since while their work is inspired by the craftsman, arts and crafts, and post modern movements each has been tailored to the client’s personality and tastes. An Abel signature.

Some of the best examples of Chris’s commercial works are the village’s Forest Avenue Mall and the Lumberyard Plaza.

The meetup is on Wednesday, October 24 at 6:30 pm. It will be held outside at the Abel residence at 855 La Vista Drive.

Parking is limited so please car pool if possible.

The Laguna Friends of Architecture meet every month on the 4th Wednesday of the month to present topics related to local architecture and will feature a variety of tours, speakers, socials and presentations.

Admission is free and a suggested donation for wine and music is $5/$10.

Please go to our ‘Laguna Friends of Architecture’ Facebook or page to join the community.

Thanks for the new things you have epexsod in your writing. One thing I’d like to reply to is that FSBO human relationships are built after a while. By bringing out yourself to owners the first weekend their FSBO will be announced, prior to masses commence calling on Thursday, you create a good link. By sending them instruments, educational elements, free reviews, and forms, you become a good ally. Through a personal interest in them and also their problem, you make a solid connection that, many times, pays off if the owners opt with a realtor they know in addition to trust preferably you actually.
