Bellevue Park's Houses and Their Designers

Not all houses in Bellevue Park are architect-designed. The larger and earlier houses tend to be individually commissioned, while later and smaller houses tend to be the product of developers and contractors. The houses present a rich variety of 20th century architectural styles.

Below is a complete list of Bellevue Park's documented house designers and their commissions. No distinction is made as to whether the designer is an architect, contractor, engineer, developer, draftsman, or other professional. Bellevue Park's archive of original house plans documents the evolving careers of some of the designers - from draftsman to architect.
