2 Architects Make Magic With This Mid-Century Modern Classic

By Claudine Zap

Sitting amid a grove of mature oak trees, a classic Mid-Century Modern property is back on the market for $2.25 million. Built in 1973, this secluded home has gone through two architects and two renovations.

You’ll find this real estate gem in the woodsy enclave of Monte Nido in Malibu Canyon, 10 minutes from the beach in Malibu.

 “It’s understated and low-key,” listing agent Brian Linder says of the design. “And yet it’s gorgeous, classical Mid-Century Modern architecture.”

Local architect Doug Rucker was commissioned to build the original home, which was completed in 1973. In 1990, the home’s second owners brought Rucker back to expand the space, adding a bedroom wing, living room extension, and an outdoor lounge with fireplace.

The Calabasas home of Staples Center architect Dan Meis is far removed from the sports and entertainment stadiums he is known to design. But the architect is looking for a new venue.

Meis recently listed the warm, 2,986-square-foot home on Cold Canyon Road with an asking price $2.5 million, Curbed reported.

Located in the Monte Nido neighborhood, the post and beam home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two indoor fireplaces, an outdoor deck and an art studio with its own entrance. Permits have already been secured for a hillside swimming pool and guest house on the property, according to the listing.

Meis purchased the home in 2015 for $1.9 million, property records show. He renovated the property extensively but preserved the original design by architect Douglas Rucker.

Meis, the founder of Meis architects, led the design of stadiums including Seattle’s Safeco Field, Cincinnati’s Paul Brown Stadium and Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.
