Rare opportunity to acquire and expand upon an AIA award winning architectural landmark in favorable proximity to the bustling, multicultural neighborhoods of Downtown and East LA. Masterfully designed by Michael Rotondi of RoTo Architects, the Reges Residence is a self-contained artist live-in compound seton over half an acre. Built as a multi-functional space; this innovative conceptual residence provides the unique opportunity to live/work with potential to expand 48,000 square feet for commercial use or end user development. The studio gallery, which heralds 35 high lofted ceilings, is an historic curation of industrial materials with a secluded library/media room and private guest suite. The space is easily adapted for events, opening up to a private tropical courtyard, koi pond and desert garden. Light pours in from a series of multi-story steel-framed windows, transforming the entire space from sunrise to sunset. A sophisticated blend of natural and industrial elements embellish the open format living/dining area, which seamlessly connects to an elevated pool deck. Constructed from a repurposed oil storage container, the pool and mezzanine provide spectacular views of Downtown and access to an elevated catwalk to explore the property. The primary suite, which features a sleek step-down wardrobe with dressing area, personal office cove, and covered gym deck, is encased in glass overlooking the Los Angeles skyline and San Gabriel Mountains. Additional guest rooms throughout the home and adjoining studio each take on compelling shapes, angles, and vantage points. Located adjacent to the historic and exclusive artist community “The Brewery”, a central hub conveniently located near multiple transportation networks providing ease of access to all of Los Angeles. A more functionally versatile, thoughtfully designed, and historically renowned home will be hard to find.
