Norm Applebaum

Architect Norm Applebaum received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Arizona State University in 1968, and was mentored by the late Calvin Straub FAIA, professor of both University of Southern California and Arizona State University schools of architecture. As a friend and admirer of the late Cliff May, father of the California Ranch House, Applebaum learned to weave homes into their surroundings. He also studied under Paolo Soleri for five years and worked in Homer Delawie’s office prior to striking out on his own. Licensed since 1972, Applebaum is known for a number of distinct projects including a 54,000-square-foot estate he designed in Rancho Santa Fe over the course of 9 years.

Among the architects he has sought inspiration from are Frank Lloyd Wright, Rudolph Schindler, Harwell Hamilton Harris, Bernard Maybeck, Cliff May, Cal Straub and John Lautner. "Mr. Wright always said that architecture is the mother art," Applebam recently said. "I do believe it. I practice as an artist. All my homes are done artistically. I don't do any development or tract work or spec work. All my individual custom homes are art."

Applebaum crafts his homes from a unique perch – a Lloyd Ruocco designed home on Mt. Helix. His surroundings, include the works of Ben Goo, Isamu Noguchi, Min Koide, George Nakashima, James Hubbell and Ethel Greene.
