Modern Design for - Mandeville Canyon - a Look Back

Our thanks to Jan Horn, Executive Director, Architectural Division at Coldwell Banker for his interview with Marc about his Mandeville Canyon design.  Their discussion appears in the L.A. Times Architecture & Design supplement. The house was originally created for two artists, husband and wife; one an architect turned director, another, a writer and sommelier.  Both were very passionate about every detail that goes into the creation of all their living spaces; a restoration in Italy, a loft in New York and an equestrian ranch in Los Angeles.  He wanted contemporary, she longed for romantic Mediterranean.  As Marc explains, the style derives from the all important floor plan. This is where decisions regarding use, light and the day to day performance of the spaces are made. The result is a beautiful, livable blend of contemporary and Italian architectural sensibilities.
