Chris Pratt is receiving criticism for destroying a historic mid-century property to build its new home.

Pratt, along with his wife Katherine Schwarzenegger, they bought the 1950s Zimmerman house last year. The Los Angeles home was designed by Craig Ellwood and the couple reportedly purchased it for $12.5 million.

It is located in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, and the deceased primarily lived there. Hilda Rolfethe widow of the co-creator of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (The CIPOL agent), Sam Rolfe.

The house and its grounds have now been cleared to make way for Pratt’s new modern single-story farmhouse, which will be 15,000 square feet in size. It will have a secondary unit, a swimming pool and a garage for three cars.

Pratt’s new home has been designed by architect Ken Ungar, who typically specializes in high-end modern farmhouse-style properties, according to Architectural Digest.

The claims for the actions of Chris Pratt and his wife

The Eichler Network, which provides news and updates on mid-century California homes, disapproved of the project. Writer Adriene Biondo said: “At the same time that architectural homes are being marketed as high-end collectible art, others are being torn down to build new ones.”

Biondo continued: “Perhaps a historic-cultural landmark designation could have saved the Zimmerman house or given the time needed to delay demolition. Tragically, calls for preservation fell on deaf ears”.

The Los Angeles Conservancy, which is dedicated to preserving historic buildings, warned of the demolition earlier this year, adding that the residence was “very intact and a notable example of modernist design from this era.”

Pratt, 44, and Schwarzenegger, 34, have been in a relationship since June 2018 and married in Montecito, California in 2019. The couple share two daughters.
