This landmarked home is being offered for the first time by the Benson Family.
Calabasas Historical Landmark, No. 2
Applying his deconstructivist “village” concept to a sloped view site in Calabasas, Gehry expresses the family home as a discrete collection of volumes, one containing the living quarters, another the sleeping quarters, and an unbuilt carport.
A palette of materials such as asphalt roofing used for exterior sheathing, plywood both painted and unfinished, concrete floors, and unfinished exposed rafters provide striking contrasts and the suggestion of a house as yet unfinished.
Two bedrooms, a loft work space, and two bathrooms are separated from the open, voluminous living space with a third bathroom and laundry by exterior corridors and connected by wood bridges.
Large windows capture stunning views of the Valley below.
2 bedrooms, 3 baths, 1719sf, 15116sf lot
