Home of the Week: Koreatown Craftsman forever linked to L.A. landmarks

This well-kept Aeroplane Craftsman in Koreatown, designed by father-and-son architectural duo John and Donald Parkinson, is a treasure trove of original woodwork and character details. The early 20th century architects are credited with designing such local landmarks as Los Angeles City Hall and Grand Central Market. The home, known as the Heart House, was designated a historic-cultural monument nearly two decades ago.
