Adamson House Tribute to Hamila and Homayra Bahrami

April 3, 2012

The beautiful reception for the opening ceremony yesterday at the Adamson House was a tribute to Hamila and Homayra Bahrami, sisters who were so inspired by Eleanor Schapa’s assignment in Fundamentals of Interior Architecture, that together they created a magnificent and well documented recreation of a portion of the Malibu tiles found in the Adamson House in Malibu.

Hamila and Homayra won the $1000 James Northcutt Scholarship for their project.  Shepard Vineburg, UCLA Extension instructor and faculty liaison of our Student ASID Chapter, and an avid docent at the Adamson House, led a tour of the house and shared his vast knowledge of the history of the house.


A note from Shepard Vineburg:

Dear Hamila and Homayra,

Congratulations on a job well done! Your hard efforts certainly paid off, as your work is now having a huge impact on everybody who gets to see it on display at Adamson House / Malibu Lagoon Museum for the next 3 months!

May you revel in the knowledge that your design work is touching the hearts of our many docents and visitors.  Besides that, you’ve never looked as beautiful as you did yesterday at the opening reception! Once again, I, along with everyone at Adamson House wish you both a very hearty congratulations!!
