Beyond the trailer park

A home designed by the son-in-law of Frank Lloyd Wright makes the front page of the Home section of the LA Times today. Set on five coastal acres, it's now the home and and workplace of composer Graeme Revell and his wife, Sinan, an artist. How do you find the place? Read on...

Drive past the tabloid photographers camped outside Brad Pitt's compound on Pacific Coast Highway, get buzzed through a white entry gate, then ramble down the long, sloped driveway, and you'll see it one of Peters' last creations, part Modernist box, part Buddhist temple. The pitched roof looks Asian in inspiration, sheathed in shimmering tiles, each shaped like a rolling wave and glazed a cerulean blue.

The front door leads to a living room that feels like a temple of sorts, a reverent homage to Mother Nature more than any deity. Walls are spider webs of glass, geometric grids of copper mullions patinated blue with age, each framing an angular window to the Pacific.
