For anyone who is a fan of the Staples Center building, there may be something a bit familiar looking with this Malibu home for sale. New to the Malibu real estate market this week is Staples Center’s head architect Ron Turner’s personal home. Turner is the head of the Gensler Design Los Angeles office and focuses on designing sports centers for cites around the world. This sums up what he’s all about…..He recently gave a speech entitled “Sports Architecture in an Age of Globalization” and focuses on LEED certified mega structures. His company is sough after by cities looking to revitalize there main centers just as it did in downtown Los Angeles.
The home is Malibu sits about 4 minutes up Las Flores canyon from PCH. The quite little street it sits on is located in a portion of the Santa Monica mountains filled with oak trees, sycamores, and deer that can often be seen in the yard. The home features ocean and canyon views, a lap pool, and has a bright interior filled with natural light. It is one of the nicest modern structures in all of Malibu and an ideal home for anyone who is a fan of glass and steel design.
Many can claim they have box seats at Staples but only one will be able to claim they have their own Staples Center style home in the hills of Malibu. Think about having your next Lakers finals party here! The only thing missing is the sausage and onion carts food vendors out in front.
Now I’m fantasizing about what I’d do with the place if I had a party….beer on tap, a guy hired to roll around the desert cart with special knocking instructions, and as a joke I’d have a guy in my driveway with those airplane parking, flashlight wands in front of a sign that said “Parking $20″…fun place yeah?
