According to the listing, the home is designed by the late architect Jack C. Spak which to be honest, I never heard of, which might be due to the fact that there is very little information about him out there. A quick search in google led me to an LA Times article published on September 4, 1987 discussing a new design for John Wayne Airport by Spak representing Irvine based Gensler & Associates. Today, Gensler is based in San Francisco and is the #1 architectural firm. Spak was based out of Long Beach and I couldnt find anything else regarding other homes he designed so this could be one of the very few available. Spak was born on December 4, 1933 and passed away on Ocotober 10, 1999 at the age of 65.
