As one of Atlanta’s preeminent classical architects, Yong Pak of Pak Heydt Associates knows timeless style when he sees it. But this unusual circa-1921 house on Oakdale Road in Druid Hills defies categorization, and its architect is unknown. “I love it because it’s an architectural mystery,” says Pak, who drives by the house on his daily commute. “It doesn’t adhere to any one style, and I never get tired of it.”
