"Designed mostly by (Jerry) Lomax, the Fidelity South Bay Bank in Manhattan Beach was commissioned in 1956 by Gerald Rosen, one of the bank's directors, because of his firm belief in "the positive influence of an 'exceptional' building on the development of a business." Rosen's delight in the bank's beautifully proportioned sturdiness led him, five years later, to commission a house in Brentwood. Chiefly designed by Lomax and (Philo) Jacobson, the Rosen House, with its major collection of Modernist painting and sculpture, was widely published."
