John Lautner has contributed some of the most unusual and interesting houses to L.A.’s rich architectural history, like The Chemosphere, for example! The Segel House on Carbon beach in Malibu is certainly among his finest creations.
Built in 1979, the house has had a number of famous owners such as Courtney Cox and David Arquette, who sold the house for over $33 million to Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. The above photo shows (shot by Julius Shulman) shows how well the house fits into the mountain landscape. Imagine what the views are like from those huge windows looking out to the Pacific Ocean! To say this is a dream beach house is an understatement.
