Anton Mueller

Mueller, G. Anton

(1934 – )

While period publications list Anton Mueller designs as on par with the work of Ralph Anderson, today little is known of his work.  Born in Denver, Colorado on May 10, 1934, Gilbert Anton Mueller received his formal education at Yale, where he received his Bachelor’s degree in architecture in 1958. Upon graduation, Mueller migrated to the Pacific Northwest to work for architect Paul Thiry.

In 1963 he formed an independent practice and quickly gained notoriety for his designs of comfortable, contemporary, richly-detailed dwellings.  His design for the Dr. Russell Ross House near Laurelhurst Park, was published in the Seattle Times and L.A. Times and received the Seattle Chapter AIA Home of the Year Award (1963). Further allocates came with the design of his own home in Beaux Arts Village (1963). The house, which featured a distinctive covered bridge entry, was highlighted in several Sunset magazine idea books for over ten years after it was built.  Other known designs include the Eden House (1965, Seattle Times/AIA Home-of-the-Month); the Grosenick House (1966); the Clark House (1968, Seattle Times/AIA Home-of-the-Month); and the Wilson House (1968) as well as several condominiums and small office buildings.

Mueller served on the University of Washington faculty as a design critic for one year in the early 1970s, and acted as Seattle Chapter AIA secretary for one year (1970-71).

In 1973 Mueller moved to New Mexico and retired from his architectural practice in the early 1980s.  Retired, today he resides in Cushing, Maine.
