More than a "live-work" space, this complex is designed for the creation, exhibition, and celebration of many art forms requiring a two-story volume, indirect light, and generous gathering areas.
Donald Wexler, FAIA, as design consultant, and Henry Buckingham, as architect,combined their talents to create a creative complex for artistic endeavors, gallery openings, and elegant living. The client, Wexler's son, commissioned the architects to design a "dream live-work space" on the adjacent lot to his older residence. The result is a DeStijl addition housing gallery/studio with overlooking offices, workspace and lounge areas. A den and oversized work space are designed to double as 4th and 5th bedrooms.The main house seamlessly connects to the workspaces and encompasses formal dining and living rooms, 3 bedrooms, 6 baths. Upper level rooms open to the private solar-heated pool. Multiple terraces, roof deck, and spa capitalize on the layered views of the Hollywood Hills. The "visual rhythm" of the spaces invites participation of painter, music maker, sculptor, picture taker, art makers all.
