Killingsworth; the Clock, Waestman, Clock Law Offices, by Killingsworth, Brady, Smith; the Pekrul House, a light-filled addition to a 1924 bungalow designed by Paul Tay; and the White House, a home atop Signal Hill that was designed by architect Bill Lockett and its original owner, pediatrician Katherine White.
