Michael Bay's LA Residence by Rios Clementi Hale Studios

Madeline Saxton-Beer - Friday, January 22, 2016



Miami architect Chad Oppenheim first came up with the concept for what would eventually be director Michael Bay's Los Angeles home after an unrealised proposal he had for a group of Caribbean villas. This explains the resort feel that permeates throughout the 30,000 square foot, three story dwelling that is comprised of the sculptural massing of rectilinear forms and astonishing cantilevers. The project was completed by L.A. firm Rios Clementi Hale Studios and boasts a state-of-the-art home theatre and a massive window wall in the lower lounge that opens by way of an elaborate counterweight system. 

Furniture includes Arne Jacobsen lounge chair (available locally from Cult), Giorgetti sofa (available locally from ECC), B&B Italia beds (available locally from Matisse), white Flexform sofa (available locally from Studio Italia) and kitchen appliances by Boffi and Wolf
