Malibu is an affluent beach city in Los Angeles County, California. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 12,645. Malibu consists of a 21-mile (34 km) strip of prime Pacific coastline. Nicknamed “the ‘Bu” by surfers and locals, the community is famous for its warm, sandy beaches, and for being the home of many Hollywood movie stars and others associated with the entertainment industry. Signs around the city proclaim “27 miles of scenic beauty”, referring to Malibu’s original length of 27 miles (43 km) before the city was incorporated in 1991.
Description: “A masterpiece of modern design and engineering, this contemporary architectural is situated amidst the sun and sea on the picturesque Malibu oceanfront. Boldly designed by architect Ed Niles in collaboration with a Disney Concert Hall engineer, the home is inspired by the shoji concept of translucency. Soaring 29-foot ceilings and walls of fiberglass draw the outdoors in, while glass window walls create changing patterns of light and frame the endless ocean views. Steel beams and concrete walls create a contrasting industrial aesthetic and provide ample space for an extensive art collection.
The Residence of WT Chen, the estate features elements of Feng Shui and is designed to be humble on the outside while achieving harmony with its natural surroundings. A nuanced panel effect draws the sea air in, creating a natural air flow throughout the home. The seaside retreat boasts 4-bedroom suites in the main house, including a luxury master with dramatic curved window walls, a separate guest house and endless family comforts. The main living area and gourmet kitchen seamlessly transition through receding pocket doors to the oceanfront outdoor living space. An enclosed casual dining area features ocean-view seating, BBQ and a buffet line off the kitchen. The home boasts every high-tech amenity imaginable, including a music room embedded into the hillside, a soundproof home theatre, 19-server hosting capability, elevator, and 11 five-ton unit zoned air conditioning. From the sophisticated technological amenities to the nuanced design and engineering, the home is one of the most unique and breathtaking architectural achievements ever to be constructed along the Malibu coast.”
