Does the Origami House Have the Best Views in Los Angeles?
The 7,000-square-foot West Hollywood home has five bedrooms, an infinity pool, a movie theater, a wine-tasting room, and more.
Situated on a promontory above the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, the Origami House gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “million-dollar views.” Thanks to its coveted vantage point and south-facing walls of glass, the 7,000-square-foot home offers views from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean. Designed by the award-winning firm Belzberg Architects and developed by Patrick Fogarty, the haute building displays an angular design, clean lines, and intersecting walls of glass.
The two-story home is outfitted with five bedrooms—including a 1,200-square-foot master suite that is perched over the pool deck below and a to-die-for deep soaking tub—and five-and-a-half baths. A floating staircase leads to the second floor, where all the guest suites are equipped with private balconies. Downstairs, the basement has a backlit, glass-encased wine-tasting room with space for up to 750 bottles and a 12-person screening room with a built-in wet bar and plush seats.

Homes within the Trousdale Estates community are some of the most sought-after plots of land in Beverly Hills. One street within the neighborhood has earned the moniker “Billionaire’s Row,” with building sites selling north of $30 million. A new property is set to be the most expensive on the block: Developed by former film producer Nile Niami and architect Paul McClean, Opus is a seven-bedroom, 11-bathroom contemporary statement covering 20,500 square feet on just more than an acre. Only two buildable lots remain on this desirable street.
The home is a stunning display of open living nestled in modern architecture. A marble entrance leads to a main-floor entertaining area that begs to host significant soirées. Massive sliding doors open to a sun deck, infinity pool, and fire pit. All of this unfolds to an unobstructed backdrop of the City of Angels stretching from downtown to the Pacific Ocean.
Niami and McClean designed the home so it blends into the lush hillside landscape. Every feature of the home is clean and crisp, without feeling grandiose. A second swimming pool gracefully divides the first and second floors with adjoining dual hot tubs in the same marbled colorways present throughout the home.
The have-it-all atmosphere continues with a 15-person screening room, spa treatment room, and a very special wine cellar for the lover of bubbly—the Cristal room contains a floor-to-ceiling collection of the coveted Champagne. There is also a large, traditional wine cellar to house the remainder of the owner’s collection.
In addition to the $3 million art collection adorning the walls, the estate also comes with two examples of automotive art in the garage: a Lamborghini and a Rolls-Royce, both clad in gold. Opus is an off-market listing with an asking price of $100 million. (drewfenton.com)
