A Unique & Industrial-Chic L.A. Architectural Landmark Looks for $7M
A unique and artful Los Angeles architectural landmark is on the market asking $7 million.
This AIA award-winning structure radiates an industrial vibe, and for good reason. In the 1990s, renowned architect Michael Rotondi designed the postmodern structure with materials from a 1920s power plant for Richard Carlson and Kathy Reges, the developers of the adjacent 16-acre Brewery Arts Complex. According to Los Angeles Magazine, the ‘Reges Residence‘ is named after the late owner, who mentored up-and-coming artists at her home. “She wanted to invite people into a public space on the ground floor, with a private upstairs,” Rotondi told the magazine in 2017.
With that, the multi-functional residence boasts a unique downstairs gallery-like area. The 35-foot lofted ceilings create tons of wall space for displaying art. A library, media room, and guest room are also located downstairs. Ideal for workshops or exhibitions, the area opens to a private courtyard, koi pond, and garden.
Upstairs, the private living quarters are complete with both industrial and natural touches. An open living and dining area opens up to an elevated pool deck, made from a repurposed oil storage container. The primary bedroom has skyline views, a generous dressing area, a covered gym deck, a private office, and an en-suite.
The three-bedroom, four-bathroom residence clocks in at 9,180 square feet, with the potential to expand 48,000 square feet for commercial use. Is your head spinning with possibilities?
The home is currently owned by Leonard Pate, the late Ms. Reges’ companion. It listed for the first time ever in 2017 asking $12.5 million and is now priced for $5.5 million less with Carl Gambino of Compass.
