Bold red accents pop against the metallic tones and concrete of this Ed Niles-designed showplace in Malibu. Inspired by the transparency of Japan’s paper-paned shoji doors, the architect created a steel-beamed masterpiece with soaring ceilings and skylights that frame views of the ocean. Taking cues from feng shui, the Chinese art of placement and energy flow, the house begins more restrained on the outside before opening to dramatic interiors.
