Town Hall Talks: Dawnridge

February 1 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Author Hutton Wilkinson will present his new book, Tony Duquette’s Dawnridge. Wilkinson will read excerpts and present photos of Dawnridge’s history and transformation. The book, which is organized by the three main houses, contains the story of how Wilkinson expanded on Duquettes design vision.
Designer Tony Duquette’s legendary Dawnridge, located in Beverly Hills, is one of the most creatively designed private homes in America. Built in 1949 by Duquette and his wife, Elizabeth, the original structure was a modest 30 x 30-foot box. Hutton Wilkinson purchased the home following Duquette’s death in 1999, and he has since breathed new life into the estate, broadening the property, adding houses of his own design, and incorporating remarkable objects designed and created by the Duquettes.
