Luis Barragán Remodel In Bel Air


1150 Brooklawn Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90077

4 BR, 6 BA
$5,450,000

The Luis Barragán Fountain home is back on the market for $5.45 million. The home was first listed in 2008 for $9.95 million and then had a number of price drops before it was leased in 2009. Originally built in 1927, the home underwent a complete remodel in 2008 by architect Tim Campbell. (Curbed has an interview with Campbell about the renovation.)

Located in the Holmby Hills section of Bel Air, the 5,500 square foot home features spectacular walls of glass, ultra high-end finishes, an open kitchen, formal dining room, spacious living room, and a separate media room with a bar. The floor to ceiling glass walls open to the famed Luis Barragán-designed pool and fountain.

The fountain, officially named Campbell Divertimento Fountain is Historic-Cultural Monument No. 637, thanks to a 1997 ruling by L.A.’s Cultural Heritage Commission. The commission states the fountain is “a signature project of Barragán, an architect of international fame and an architect of great importance to contemporary Mexican culture.”

These photos were taken by legendary architectural photographer Julius Shulman, who captured the home after it was renovated by Campbell.

The modern white space and high ceilings make this residence ideal for large art collections.

The master suite has a private outdoor spa. There are also 3 additional bedrooms and 6 baths, making it perfect for guest or entertaining. In fact, according to an Los Angeles Times article on the property, the home has a history as a party spot for movie stars, musicians, artists, and even royalty.

This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of modernist history. If you’d like to see this home in person, email me or call me at 323-775-6305!

    Really stunning. May be top of my list if I won the lotto.

    Great work. Great blog.

    People living in the house will always feel the sharp point of the cascading water pointing at them. This cannot be a comfortable feeling. It is against the laws of good fengshui !

    One should be able to see the declining fortune of the occupants of this house.
