Good design has the responsibility of providing the technical and aesthetic integrity needed to enhance the human experience,” says interior designer Ron Meyers, who plays that philosophy out in glamour spots such as Atlas and the Conga Room, as well as in hospices and low-income housing (he's currently at work on the Normandie Village, a development for families with kids) that have won him numerous L.A. Conservancy preservation awards. (Kateri Butler)
