Villa Riviera
(Long Beach, CA)

The Villa Riviera Hotel was constructed in 1929. At the time, it was the second-tallest building in Southern California after Los Angeles City Hall. Late Architect Richard D. King won a grand prize at an international contest for the design of the sixteen-story building. Construction costs exceeded two million dollars. Its architecture savors of the majestic Tudor Gothic, with a marked resemblance to the Italian and French Renaissance, all blended into a composite grace of line that overshadows any single decorative detail.
