Modernist architect takes cue from Renaissance

SAN CELEMENTE, Calif. - "Italian Renaissance" won't be the first words that pop to mind when you pull up to the gleaming white home on a hillside in San Clemente where Lawrence - "Larry" - and Sandy Armstrong have lived for 15 years. The precise lines, use of glass and curving walls will feel familiar to anyone acquainted with the German art school aesthetic of Bauhaus or will perhaps recall the modernist beauty of architect Richard Meier's Getty Center. "The white house," as the guard in this gated community calls it, is undeniably distinct in a neighborhood populated by more conventionally built homes.
