This project called for the complete renovation of a 5500 square foot existing home in the Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills, California. Paul Trousdale bought 410 acres of the unbuilt property from the Doheny Estate in 1954 and soon after began developing sprawling view properties limited to single-level homes. This property sits near the top of a cul-de-sac road and enjoys roughly 270° spectacular views of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. The original house was designed in 1962. Curved and circular elements are repeated motifs that can be found throughout the original design. The current owners bought the property with the intention of turning it into an open, airy and contemporary home for living and entertainment and to showcase their evolving collections of modern and contemporary photography. The remodeled design is timeless and elegant with elements of swank to be sure, but with a very forward-looking sensibility.
