The current house is rebuilt in 2008 by Eric Butler Design, he has been responsible for both the interior and the exterior of the Pasadena House.
Eric Butler received his Bachelor of Architecture from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 1991 and moved to Portland that same year. He and his wife, Michelle Smit, started their careers making studio furniture for craft galleries from Los Angeles to Seattle. As the projects grew in size the studio furniture work was replaced by architectural design and build projects including homes, remodels, and condominium interiors.
“Each project is an exploration of light, structure, space and craft. Our goal is to create contemporary and timeless work that meets the needs and aspirations of our clients. We’ve been able to achieve a very high level of detail and craft by fabricating all of our custom cabinetry, furniture, and concrete in house. All woodwork and precast concrete pieces shown on this site were designed and built at our 5000 square foot shop and showroom in Portland”. (from www.ericbutlerdesign.com/architecture-and-artistry/.)

Bungalow Heaven is a neighborhood of 800 small craftsman homes built from 1900 to 1930. Many of these homes are still occupied. Much of the area became a landmark district in 1989, and annual historic home tours have been conducted since that designation. Bungalow Heaven’s borders are Washington Boulevard to the north, Orange Grove Boulevard to the south, Mentor Avenue to the west, and Chester Avenue to the east. The neighborhood is usually extended to Lake Avenue to the west and Hill Avenue to the east. Famed architects Greene and Greene built several of their Japanese-inspired bungalows in Pasadena, including the Gamble House; the style of the homes in Bungalow Heaven show the effects of their success.
The maker of Wrigley’s chewing gum, William Wrigley Jr.’s, substantial home was offered to the city of Pasadena after Mrs. Wrigley’s death in 1958, under the condition that their home would be the Rose Parade’s permanent headquarters. The stately Tournament House stands today, and serves as the headquarters for the Tournament of Roses Parade. Adolphus Busch, co-founder of Anheuser-Busch, brewer of Budweiser beer, established the first of a series of Busch Gardens in Pasadena. When Busch died at his Pasadena estate, his wife generously offered the property to the City of Pasadena, an offer the city inexplicably refused. Henry Markham, who lived adjacent to Busch, was the 18th Governor of the state of California (1891–1895) and wrote Pasadena: Its Early Years.

It is open to the public as both an architectural conservancy and museum. In 1966, it was deeded to the city of Pasadena in a mutual agreement with the University of Southern California School of Architecture. Every year, two fifth-year USC architecture students live in the house full-time. The students change yearly.
