Architecture aficionados sometimes liken Bart Prince's soaring, layered residential designs to the work of John Lautner and Frank Lloyd Wright, but drive by one of his remodeling projects in South Pasadena, and you'd never suspect what hides behind the unassuming exterior. "The neighborhood preferred maintaining the general scale and appearance of the street side of the house, so I did little to change things there," Prince says. A single wooden beam provides some visual cohesion as it runs along the top of the garage and joins to the entrance way. The original second story is still visible above the Prince addition.
