Tony and Elizabeth Duquette built “Dawnridge” after their marriage in 1949. Set in a  Los Angeles canyon, the garden was conceived as an East Asian collection of pavillions,  pagodas and unique sculptures . Terraces lit by alabaster-like Chinese lanterns made  in resin by the designer were situated for al fresco dining. On the lower terrace, beyond  the swimming pool through nacre covered obelisks, presided Tony Duquette’s 28′ foot tall  sculpture “Pheonix Rising from Its Flames”.
