The Kearsarge Residence renovated by the Kurt Krueger Architect practice and is located in Los Angeles, California.
The original residence was designed in 1968 by the modernist Romanian-American architect Haralamb H. Georgescu and it is located in a forest in Brentwood right inside the city so that there were a lot of challenges in the renovation. The designers wanted to honor the original work and restore the house to its original character while also bringing it up to date.
The three main areas of the house, namely the office, loft and living area, were opened to interact with each other and the original blue-grey tone of the house was unveiled since it created an interesting connection with the surrounding landscape.
The cabinets and casework were redesigned in mahogany wood and the cabinets in the dining room were given the original details. Wooden floors replaced the purple carpet and the checkered linoleum and the deck outside were also replaced with steel posts and a cable rail system.
