When I think of Frank Gehry, I usually think of his bold one-of-a-kind signature style as seen from the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown LA or Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. For a long time, one of my favorite homes by Gehry is the whimsical Schnabel House in Brentwood. This property in Malibu, however, is a very subtle Gehry doesn't attempt to make some grand statement, but rather, to harmoniously fit into its environment. It very beautifully and perfectly exudes what's great about the Malibu lifestyle. The "Tin House" combines Gehry's bold, modern lines with a sophisticated warm palate of wood and metal-clad finishes. This outside-of-the-box shabby chic home with very big volume & bright spaces opens out to enjoy over 3 acres of beautiful and tranquil grounds. The simplicity of this property is blissful and absolutely divine.
