Perched high above the iconic Sunset Strip on a promontory overlooking West Hollywood, this cutting-edge modern residence, designed by trailblazing architectural firm Olson Kundig, commands attention with its breathtaking vistas spanning from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. Encompassing 15,600 square feet across three levels, the home is a testament to the fusion of architectural ingenuity and the natural splendor of its surroundings. The overarching design philosophy revolves around the concept of a “big view,” where the ever-changing personalities of Los Angeles, influenced by the time of day and climate, act as the driving force behind the aesthetic choices.

The seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces is a hallmark of this residence, blurring the boundaries between nature and architecture. Expansive terraces, gardens, and pools totaling nearly 7,000 square feet invite inhabitants to engage with the environment at every turn. The interplay of retractable window walls in the living spaces, kitchen, and bedrooms, reminiscent of a Rubikโ€™s Cube with its interlocking boxes and planes, contributes to a dynamic living experience. Renowned architect Tom Kundig, FAIA, RIBA, emphasized the home’s ability to navigate different scales – from the vast Los Angeles landscape to the intimacy of daily living spaces – allowing for a fluid expansion or contraction based on the evolving needs of the homeowner and their guests.

A masterpiece that took six years to meticulously craft, this industrial organic modern marvel is a sensory experience that engages every facet of the human spirit. The design seamlessly integrates unbranded organic wood, stone, and board-formed concrete, creating a cohesive visual narrative. With hidden panels and design features that unveil themselves with a touch, the residence exemplifies modern elegance with uninterrupted precision. Beyond its architectural prowess, the home is equipped for grand gatherings with a 15-car auto gallery, dramatic guillotine doors opening to an expansive deck, and an array of pools that cascade over the Los Angeles skyline. This is more than a residence; itโ€™s described as a Bond house of the future, transporting inhabitants to a realm of unparalleled luxury and sophistication.

Originally custom built for Kipp Nelson, partner at private equity firm Long Arc Capital and a former partner at Goldman Sachs in London according to The Real Deal, the home was reportedly acquired in June 2023 for $37.44 million by Dean and Darcy Christal, founders of the Olaplex Hair Care Brand, popular with celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow, according to a story in
