Italo Calpestri III is a third generation resident of Alameda and a highly regarded architect in the small island community. Of course since Alameda is largely Victorian era homes, the majority of his commissions tend to be renovations of one sort or another. This Piedmont Pines home in Oakland is the rare exception. It was built for a successful Alameda orthodontist and it is a fully realized custom design that already demonstrates the more vertical heavily timbered construction that would come to characterize the 70s even though it was built in late 60s.
