In the much coveted 800 block of the flats in Beverly Hills, there sits an architectural curiosity boasting the balance of modern edge and functional design. The home, located at 818 N. Roxbury Dr., was entrusted to architect Leonardo Umansky by his parents Alfredo and Betty Umansky. Respecting their initial desire for a Mediterranean retreat, Leonardo, who is the cousin of The Agency's CEO Mauricio Umansky, pushed them to consider their 40 year old extensive art collection for further inspiration.
