A Malibu home designed by Richard Meier, the Pritzker Prize Winner behind the Getty Museum, and member of the New York Five, sold for $110 million this month. Sold in collaboration with Sotheby’s International, this sets a new record for a single-family home in LA county.
The home, located at Carbon Beach in Malibu, in many ways reflects the geometric style of Meier, but also differentiates itself through its use of teak wood as opposed to his signature color white. This wooden facade also allows the home to blend in with the grasses of the ocean. The property is comprised of two homes–separated by a courtyard and pool, and is 8,000 sq. feet with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Simultaneously, Richard Meier has been accused of sexual harassment by five women, and, ironically, it was Sotheby’s, the same company involved in the $110 million transaction, who cancelled an exhibition of Meier’s art work earlier this year after the allegations surfaced. His exhibition at the S2 Gallery in Manhattan was showcasing his collages and silk-screens.
