    Default The Bart Prince house

    Architecture aficionados sometimes liken Bart Prince’s soaring, layered residential designs to the work of John Lautner and Frank Lloyd Wright, but drive by one of his remodeling projects in South Pasadena, and you’d never suspect what hides behind the unassuming exterior. “The neighborhood preferred maintaining the general scale and appearance of the street side of the house, so I did little to change things there,” Prince says. A single wooden beam provides some visual cohesion as it runs along the top of the garage and joins to the entrance way. The original second story is still visible above the Prince addition.

    the architecture is kind of funky though not my style but all the furniture sucks big time. i hate those stupid curtains everywhere (tacky!), the ugly sofas, it doesn't make any sense. and what's with all the ikea armchairs?

    it sort of looks like an optical illusion. it makes me dizzy. i hate the curtains and the floors. the yellow/green outdoor lights make it look cheap. and i have no idea why there are at least 7 poang chairs in the living area.

    The architecture is amazing, wish the owners had done more with the decor though.
