Home of the Day: Haralamb Georgescu-designed modernist home with a glass pavilion in Brentwood

Known as the Kearsarge Residence, this Brentwood home by Romanian architect Haralamb Georgescu is distinguished by open space, clean lines and an overall form that is both simple and utilitarian. A two-story living room, with a back-lighted hearth and walls of glass, acts as the focal point of the free-flowing modernist home, built in 1969. Adjacent to the main house, set among a private garden, is a secondary pavilion framed in glass.
