As you drive along the Hollywood Hills, you will find the extravagent, architectural homes and unique properties that scream opulence, but as you wind around Pacific View Drive, just off Mulholland, you come upon a row of homes built by Harry Gesner, renowned architect, known as the “Boathouses“. Though most people believed it was just impossible to put a house on a lot just 25 feet wide, with only the driveway being useable part of the foundation, Gesner never passed up a challenge. His clients would come to him with unbuildable lots and impossible budgets, and he would take them on without reserevation. Recently, I sat with him him in his ocean-front, West Malibu home and plied him with the questions that came to mind since the first time I saw his most noteable creation, The Wave House, which is located in Malibu. Though it’s been said The Wave House inspired architect Jorn Utzon to build the Sydney Opera House, which was completed in 1973. The interview was broken into 7 parts, that will be rolled out as a series in the weeks to follow. Listen as Harry talks about his inspiration for the Mid-Century homes built in the late 1950′s.
