Frank Israel-designed Malibu beach house asks for £6.9m

‘LA Ten’ architect Franklin D Israel designed this post-modern Malibu home which has ocean views and an angular, sail-life roofline.

Israel was best known for his Hollywood residential designs, having spent the several years of his early career working in the movie industry as a set designer, including on the movie picture, Star Trek. According to Columbia, Israel was a proponent of ‘incremental design’ and juxtaposing newer and older buildings to create a heterogeneous cityscape, and that ethos comes to play at 225 Carbon Masa which he completed in 1995.

‘Seeking to bridge the gap in scale between individual buildings and the urban context, he spoke of designing “cities within,” interior spaces with the variety, color, and surprise of a major metropolis.’

A glazed ‘cockpit’ office overlooks the interiors of the home, which has a flowing kitchen, dining area, and living room with floor-to-ceiling glass looking out onto the stepped terraces and swimming pool. Each room is conceived to arrive at an ‘event’; views of the landscaped gardens by Jay Griffiths, glimpses of the sky through its expansive skylights, and views of the horizon beyond the trees, exaggerated by lofty ceilings.

The Los Angeles property is for sale via DPP Real Estate for $6.9m and has six bedrooms, tucked discreetly in the wings of the home to open onto the terrace.
