Exploring the hidden San Mateo cul-de-sac where creative but unheralded architect Mogens Mogensen left a lasting mark
Mogie Modern
Mogensen's Adeline Apartments (Burlingame).

Mogensen's Legacy

Mogens Mogensen's Sunset Terrace modern homes can be found on that street's southernmost block, off Hillsdale Boulevard just past Hillsdale High. A seven-page article about the neighborhood, 'These Houses have Eight Musts,' in the March 1956 House & Home magazine, can be found in many libraries.

While driving El Camino Real and thereabouts through Burlingame and San Mateo, one passes numerous apartments by Mogensen, including:

• In Burlingame: Carol Apartments (55 El Camino), Adeline Apartments (1479 El Camino), 500 El Camino Real Apartments, 1838 El Camino Real Apartments, Skyline Terrace Apartments (3133 Frontera Way), Bellevue Apartments (1418 Bellevue Avenue), Park Central Apartments (724 Laurel Avenue - includes mosaic by Cecelia Mogensen)

• In San Mateo: Ambassador Apartments (145 North El Camino), Two Clark Drive Apartments (2 Clark Drive)
