Interior The Freshmaker

In Pasadena, a monumental design by Bob Ray Offenhauser

Late architect Bob Ray Offenhauser left an indelible mark on the San Gabriel Valley, having worked on several projects at the Huntington Library and Gardens including the greenhouse, glass conservatory and library. This Pasadena residence, built in 1979, underscores Offenhauser’s command of grand-scale living. Clean lines, towering proportions and a copper mansard-style roof give the Italianate villa-style home a monument-like appearance. A two-story entry hall with original hand-painted Zuber wallpaper marks the entrance to the two-story house.
