Architect to the stars Richard Landry has popped his traffic-stopping beach house in Malibu on the market at $11.995 million.

The three-story home was compartmentalized and the interior spaces were dark when he bought the property five years ago for $3.95 million. Landry reworked the house to create open-plan spaces and bring in natural light. The driveway is adorned with artistic geometric shapes. A floating glass staircase connects the levels. An eye-catching fixture sits above the dining table. 

But it’s the mood lighting that really makes the place stand out -- especially at night. The 4,298 square feet of clean-lined interiors have white stone and plaster wall finishes that show off the colored lighting feature. The ambiance can be changed with shades of red, blue and purple at the touch of a button.


The living room and kitchen on the main floor take in ocean views. The second-floor master suite has a glass wall that floods the center of the house with light. Automated draperies provide privacy for the bedroom.

A third-floor media room and bar open to a roof terrace to create a large entertainment space. The sliding doors are concealed in a pocket in the wall.

There are a total of four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one powder room.

The terrace has fire pit and a barbecue center.


Landry has designed homes for celebrities such as musicians Michael Bolton, Rod Stewart and Kenny G.

Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker is the listing agent.
