Six-time Emmy nominee Will Arnett is bidding farewell to his partly prefab home, just three years after it was completed in 2017.
Hidden in the mountains above Beverly Hills, the secluded five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath dwelling not only boasts stunning canyon views, but also striking modernist appeal. It is easy to see Ray Kappe's influence in the home's long, cantilevered roof lines and prominent use of wood.
Arnett originally bought the three-quarter-acre property in 2015 for $2.86 million and demolished the existing house to make way for a new custom design that tapped into his childhood love for modernist architecture as well as his then-budding interest in prefabrication.
According to Dwell's May 2018 cover story with Arnett, the Hollywood actor hired architect Suchi Reddy—the Reddymade Design founder had worked on many of Arnett’s properties—along with Santa Monica-based prefab company LivingHomes to realize his modernist modular vision.
Instead of going entirely modular, the design team crafted a mostly prefabricated L-shaped home with about a third of its footprint built on-site. LivingHomes’ Ray Kappe-designed RK2 model served as a starting point for the highly customized build, which took over two years to complete and emphasizes indoor/outdoor living.
The prefabricated section of the home comprises six 12-foot-wide modules stacked together to house four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths as well as the kitchen, dining area, and double-height living room. The home also includes a site-built guest wing with a recording booth, bathroom, and a library/guest room with a Murphy bed.
