Estate of the Arts

Architect Michael Lee creates an astounding show place for art and ocean views in a home that was once two three-story apartments.

Before: Two separate, three-story apartments got the makeover of their lives.

After: Now a stylish, 3,800-square-foot home occupies the same footprint but in a vastly updated form.

The living room's floor-to-ceiling windows highlight the home's scenic vistas.

As shown here, the new owners wanted plenty of space for their art collection, which also meant controlling the amount of light in the space as well. The solution: motorized roller shades and UV-protected glass.

The home's interior palette reflects the client's enthusiasm for texture and color: mahogany ceilings hover over rift white oak cabinets and bamboo floors.

The home's facade features a large Corten steel panel over the limestone entryway.
