Renowned Architect Miguel Angel Aragonés Lists Minimalist Yet Groovy Beverly Hills Masterpiece
With accolades and magazine features all over the world, Miguel Angel Aragonés’ work is very well-known. Mexico’s top modernist architect also gets in on real estate, and just listed his newest Los Angeles project. The price is steep at $20 million, but the Beverly Hills home’s minimalist geometric design, party-ready lighting, and tranquil setting all add up.
Designing seems to be in the family genes as Miguel and his son Rafael Aragonés collaborated on this Trousdale Estates creation, completed just a few months ago. Miguel purchased the property with a circa-1960 building on it but started anew to build this sleek escape. Suiting anyone from a rising star to a hip family, the geometric modern is either spa-like or club-like depending on how you set the lighting.
Employing an open and almost futuristic layout, clean lines and a white palette help to make its surrounding greenery and turquoise pool pop. Capitalizing on the ease of indoor/outdoor living in California, state-of-the-art sliding systems surround almost every space in the 7,500-square-foot abode.
Located at 510 Arkell Drive, the 90210 home may be cited on the corner of two streets but it couldn’t feel more private with the father-son duo’s precise and meticulous design. Its four bedrooms and five bathrooms are tucked away from the main spaces, where custom poliform built-ins line the halls. To add to the home’s exclusive feel, a rooftop lounge sets the ultimate scene for stylish dining al fresco.
Yawar Charlie and Karen Sanchez of Aaron Kirman Group at Compass, Ben Becal at Revel Real Estate and Ethan Pescowitz at Westside Estate Agency hold the listing.
