Nomland & Nomland

Architect Kemper Nomland (1892-1976) was born in Buxton, North Dakota and secured his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Columbia University in 1916. He worked in various offices in New York, Seattle and Los Angeles including as a draftsman for Aymar Embury (1916-17) in New York and, Albert C. Martin (1922) in Los Angeles prior to working as Chief Draftsman for Marston, Van Pelt & Maybury (1923-25, in Pasadena) as well as Austin, Martin, Parkinson (1926-27). He launched his own firm Kemper Nomland, AIA Architect in 1928. Later in his career, Mr. Nomland served as a Commissioner on the Los Angeles Board of Building and Safety.

Kemper Nomland, Jr. (1919-2009) was born in Los Angeles and graduated from Pasadena City College (in 1938) and then received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from USC in 1941. The younger Nomland worked for Albert C. Martin prior to launching the firm, Nomland & Nomland, with his father after the War. Together, in 1947, they designed a house in Pasadena that “…was not originally commissioned as part of Arts & Architecture magazine’s Case Study House program, but was added upon completion in 1947 to maintain continuity in the program given the number of unbuilt houses up to that point. The house exemplified a number of the program’s goals, including the use of new building materials and techniques, affordability for the average American, simplicity of construction, economy of materials, and integration of indoor and outdoor living,” according to the Los Angeles Conservancy. The house became known as Case Study House #10.

The younger Nomland, according to the LA Times, “…was a conscientious objector during World War II and was confined to Civilian Public Service Camp #21 near Cascade Locks, Oregon, where he did forest maintenance work, as well as CPS Camp #56, Camp Angel, near Waldport, Oregon, where he did printing work and became friends with a group of poets and artists.” Nomland designed several covers for books printed by Untide Press as well as working on the journal Illiterati. “He designed the chapel at CPS Camp #21, and seven of his paintings done while there (or influenced by his experience there) are held by Lewis and Clark College. He illustrated a book of poems entitled War Elegies by William Everson, whom he met while at the CPS camps.”

"I just figured I could never be involved in killing anybody," Nomland said in an oral history interview for the U.S. Forest Service and Portland State University. "I couldn't see any reason for war either. . . . I just couldn't participate."

In 1950, Nomland moved to Mount Washington near downtown Los Angeles, where he designed his own three-level, hillside home and at least a dozen other homes.
