By Subrina Hudson

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.
