I think sometimes it’s easy to forget that our politicians are also our neighbors. Therefore, I thought I’d share some pictures of the beautiful and earth friendly home councilman Eric Garcetti shares with Amy Elaine Wakeland. Their home was featured in the 2008 July/August issue of Dwell magazine. The house was designed by Daniel Dworsky (who designed the Bradley terminal at LAX!) in the early 1950s. It was then adapted by architect Elissa Scrafano when Garcetti and Wakemen purchased the home. You can see more pictures and read about all of the ecologicaly friendly renovations on Dwell’s website.
