The Emanuel Gainsburg Residence, 1946



Wright’s interpretation of the rambling single story California ranch house for pharmacist Emanuel Gainsburg and his family is carefully set in a mature nature garden at the foot of the picturesque San Gabriel Mountains. It’s hidden away yet permits easy access to downtown Los Angeles. Like a sacred retreat, the environment both indoors and outdoors is peaceful, and conducive to mindfulness. Largely hand built over a period of years from conception, the structure imparts solidity as it is constructed of costly redwood stone, concrete and glass. There have been sensitive updates by architect Rick Corsini to the kitchen, cabinetry, and mechanical systems which facilitate comfortable modern living. Sited on nearly seven tenths of an acre, the property invites a nearly extinct classic California indoor/outdoor living experience. The generous residence of well over 3,000 square feet incorporates 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, library, living and dining areas, updated kitchen, laundry and two car carport.
