What does it look like when a house becomes a man’s life project? Cue 1302 Collingwood, the one-of-a-kind luxury property that – from the very depths of its foundations to every finishing detail – has been innovatively imagined and meticulously executed to make an extraordinary mark on the Los Angeles cityscape. And, as anyone aware of the calibre of properties on the current LA real estate scene will know, that’s no small feat.
While it’s a mammoth task to create a unique work of architecture anywhere in the world, it takes a true visionary to design and develop a residence with the clout to stand out amongst Hollywoods’s crop of covetable homes. The creative force behind this American dream home is Richard Landry. Throughout his career, the renowned architect and founder of Landry Design Group has designed properties for the likes of Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady, Rod Stewart and Mark Wahlberg. He was also architect behind the rented Holmby Hills mansion that served as Michael Jackson’s last residence.
For this modern masterpiece, which stole his attention for the most significant period of his career, Landry partnered with his good friend and the property’s owner to create the expansive three-floor property together.
