An architectural tour de force and only one of the few private homes in the United States designed by the renowned Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architect, Tadao Ando. Best known for his minimalist structures and his assured use of reinforced concrete, Ando's trademark design of "smooth-as-silk" concrete is wholly present in the structure and surface of the home. Constructed of approximately 1,200 tons of concrete, 200 tons of steel reinforcement, and 12 massive pylons driven more than 60 feet into the sand with AD100 architecture firm Marmol Radziner acting as executive architect and general contractor, the structure is an everlasting beacon of permanence on California's coastline. Natural light is used creatively throughout the space, another signature of Ando, to manipulate a warm feeling throughout the building and harmonize with its natural surroundings. The home spans +/- 4,000 sq. ft. of interior space and approximately 1,500 sq. ft. of outdoor decks with ocean views from every room. Currently all interior finishes have been removed from the property, and work is needed to either restore or reimagine the interiors. Thoughtfully located on the prestigious and quiet Malibu Road, with easy access and close proximity to the finest restaurants, shopping, and entertainment in all of Malibu. An exceedingly rare architectural achievement that should be seen as a masterful work of art, rather than just a residence.
