Home of the Week: An artsy architectural in Brentwood


Irish architect Lorcan O’Herlihy, son of Oscar-nominated actor Dan O’Herlihy, has a knack for mixing art and architecture in his works across Southern California, and this modern spot in Brentwood is no different. Tucked among trees, the residence was given a sleek remodel by Robert Steloff and receives plenty of sun from walls of glass and skylights. A pivoting glass door at the heart of the home opens outside, where a lush courtyard adds a kitchen and fireplace.
