My Home As Art :: Douglas Rucker, Architect :: Mid-Century Malibu

A 10-minute drive up Malibu Canyon from the beach, this pristine Mid-Century Modern home is nestled in the picturesque Monte Nido neighborhood, a short walk to Saddle Peak Lodge just East of Malibu Creek State Park. Architect Douglas Rucker designed the post and beam structure with walls of glass and skylights to take full advantage of the pristine acre-plus site, surrounded by a grove of mature native oak trees. Current owner, architect Dan Meis, designer of the Staples Center, has respectfully renovated the home, preserving the original design intent and introducing new materials and finishes in keeping with a contemporary lifestyle. The open plan and seamless connection to the outdoors make this an exceptional home for entertaining, with two fireplaces indoors and a third on the outdoor deck adjacent to the built-in barbecue. Multiple living areas include a den, living room, and a spacious art studio with its own entrance, ideal for live-ins, home office or family room. Future plans in permitting include a hillside swimming pool and guest house.
