Chester A. Widom, who was recently appointed State Architect of California, is best known for designing large commercial and institutional buildings, including the Autry Museum in Griffith Park. But early in his career, Widom, now 71, designed an Echo Park duplex that dangles off a hillside where Morton Avenue bends sharply and turns into Avon Street. The box-like building, featured in the 2003 Historic Echo Park Home Tour, rests on metal stilts, revealing the steep slope underneath the house. Stunning views but unsettling for anyone who likes living close to the ground.
