Inside a Modern Los Angeles Complex with Invader Street Art

Luxury interior architecture is often designed with art in mind: blank walls for large paintings, open spaces for sculpture. Less common, however, are houses that also display prized works of art on their exterior facades, such as this recently-listed Venice modern masterpiece.

Located a few blocks from the beach, the modern 3,400-square-foot complex houses the first works of art commissioned by famed French street artist Invader.

The anonymous artist’s signature pixelated mosaic work can be seen from the street behind a gated fence on the outside corner of one of the property’s multiple buildings.

Partly inspired by the urban warehouses of Austin and Los Angeles, and the train station converted-art center Bergamot Station near Santa Monica, the facade of the house features sleek corrugated metal with vibrant orange, pink and green accents that complement the black industrial hull. accentuate.

Other prominent works of art include a mural paying tribute to the late singer-songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston that covers the side of the two-storey studio/garage.

Artistic flair isn’t just on the outside. High, exposed ceilings, polished concrete floors and colorful eye-catching walls evoke a fashionable factory befitting Warhol’s superstars.

Glass walls and patio doors throughout the three-bedroom, five-bathroom property allow the many exterior works to be admired both inside and out.

In the main house, the open concept space is gently divided by a split-level floor plan, with stairs leading to the kitchen and dining area. The airy primary suite encompasses the entire second floor.

On the adjacent Abbot Kinney there is also a detached studio with a bathroom and a sunny courtyard, two roof terraces and two covered parking spaces.

Priced at $8.25 million, the listing is held by Zach Goldsmith of Beverly Hills-based Hilton & Hyland.
