Modernist architect Irving Gill wasn't known for designing houses with the main rooms on the second floor, but some touches inspired by his work -- such as a creamy white exterior, the use of natural light and heavily framed windows -- make this custom home stand out on Little Balboa Island. It's a hybrid of old and new -- a bit Craftsman, contemporary and Mission-style in appearance. "Some people call it Southwestern contemporary while others label it California modern, but it's neither of those," says Glen Gellatly, who designed the house nearly a decade ago when he was with Bissell Architects.

For us L.A. old-timers, there's something odd about the first days of summer this year. The air is clear. Unnaturally clear. One day this week, standing in front of my home in Mount Washington just north of downtown, I could actually see the faint outline of Catalina Island 52 miles away. But soon, very soon, Catalina will disappear. So will Mt. Baldy. Even the nearby San Gabriels will be lost to me in that notorious khaki-colored haze that descends upon our city in July and August.

A tornado touched down Tuesday in the center of the city, injuring at least 26 people as it smashed windows at office towers and damaged an apartment complex and a restaurant, officials said. The headquarters building of Enron Corp, a natural gas company, was evacuated after three employees were hurt by flying glass from about 50 smashed windows on the 31st to 34th floors of the glass-fronted building, police said.

Hunting for their first home last summer, Fabian and Julie Yeager found a great buy in a 1923 Spanish-style house in South Pasadena and bought it, they say, for thousands below market. They got such a good deal, the Yeagers say, because much of the home's original charm had been destroyed by the renovation efforts of previous owners. "Although we loved the neighborhood and could see the charm of the house, at first we were appalled by the way it had been altered," Fabian Yeager, a lighting designer, said.

The apartment building at 2602 Broadway in Santa Monica doesn't scream "affordable housing. " Rather, its proportions and details are more like that of the neighboring 1960s buildings, and that's because 2602 Broadway takes a cue from those iconic structures, architect Kevin Daly said. "What we've done is take the typical L.A. dingbat, which I would characterize as a four-sided doughnut of a building, and break it apart and move toward the extreme edge of the property," Daly said.

PARIS -- Is the City of Light about to hit the dimmer switch? Some of the French capital's most celebrated attractions, including the luxury stores of the Champs-Elysées, could be thrown into darkness under a government proposal to pull the plug on illumination at night. Delphine Batho, France's minister for energy and environment, is drawing up regulations to force shops, offices and public buildings across France to switch off their lights  between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m.  The new rules, to be outlined "in the next few weeks," are aimed at saving energy and money as well as showing "sobriety" at a time of economic crisis, Batho told reporters.
