    Default The Pasinetti house

    Restoration architect Aaron Torrence of Design Plus Construction climbs the stairs at the renovated Pasinetti house. The Beverly Hills home was built in 1958 by architect Haralamb Georgescu. Renowned in his native Romania, Georgescu (1908-77) designed dozens of buildings in Southern California, but never gained the same level of fame here as his midcentury contemporaries. Before he fled Communist rule and immigrated to the U.S. in 1947, Georgescu had a successful career; today many of his modernist buildings in Bucharest are landmarks. His Pasinetti house was featured in the influential Arts & Architecture magazine 50 years ago, but the house fell into obscurity until real estate developer Tim Braseth of Willow Glen Partners came upon the property in 2007. Torrence was called in to help with the restoration of the home, which takes its name from its first owner, Italian writer Pier Maria Pasinetti (1913-2006), who taught Italian and comparative literature at UCLA.

    Yes Yes Yes. Inside is good and workable with lots of space for innovative ideas..the outside is a minimalist NIGHTMARE! You live in a place that is practically a garden of Eden ..and your place looks like a sterile box you could find in Siberia? The only difference is the large oversized windows. Otherwise it is just an unadorned large fucking wooden shed! And WTF kind of 'landscaping' is that? Horrific-something you would expect in a freakin' desert or something.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!
