*We requested a few notes on Pereira’s work from architect, author, lecturer, and preservationist, Alan
Hess: ”William Pereira is famous for the major museums (LACMA), airports, skyscrapers, campuses, and city
plans he designed to reshape the West in the second half of the twentieth century. He designed few residences,
but those he did were for extraordinary clients such as tire magnate Leonard Firestone, Los Angeles Times
publisher Otis Chandler, and his own house in Los Angeles. The house he designed in Salt Lake City is
contemporary with the Firestone estate in Palm Springs, and exhibits similar confident lines and flowing spaces,
inside and out. The Firestone house was recently restored by new owners as part of the tremendous revival of
interest in Palm Springs’ excellent midcentury Modern architecture. Pereira’s Salt Lake City house holds the
same potential to enjoy a unique piece of architecture.” We think it’s imperative this spot be preserved, and we
wholeheartedly commend those folks that champion for the preservation of amazing spaces in our city (it’s for
this reason the current owners elected our COLLECTIVE hand to find the next folks to live their lives here).
