James Jannard must be an interesting man.
The American businessman and entrepreneur founded Oakley in 1975 as well as the Red Digital Camera Company in 2007. Somewhere amidst his many business ventures and equally numerous properties in his portfolio, this brutalist pad sitting atop a Beverly Hills cliff in Los Angeles seemed like a logical idea.
Spread over 18,000 square foot of prime real estate and taking inspiration from Stonehenge, the abstract property took some five years to complete. An ominous circular courtyard leads to the rectangular house built with exposed concrete and aluminium.
Hid behind a huge metal door, the symmetrical interior opens to 5 reflective floor to ceiling windows overlooking an infinity pool and the commanding view of the Los Angeles skyline.
