"The Real Deal" Features 510 Arkell
A 7,500-square-foot Trousdale Estates house remodeled by a well-known architect, has listed for $20 million, or $2,667 per square foot.
The Arkell Drive project embodies the Mexican architect Miguel Ángel Aragonés technique. After dusk, the house’s LED lights use cast blue, red, magenta and cyan light inside and outside of the house, Miguel Ángel and Rafael Aragonés told The Real Deal in an exclusive interview.
“Color is inherent to many examples of Mexican architecture for hundreds of years. A natural step for us is to use contemporary technology to play with this element at night,” Rafael Aragonés said. “The house and its walls are transformed through LED-colored lighting, transporting you to a different mood and context.”
Formerly owned by real estate developer Aaron Rivani of Global Investment & Development and his wife Janet, the house is now owned by 510 Arkell LLC, which is backed by Taller Aragonés. The house’s listing agents are Yawar Charlie and Karen Sanchez of Aaron Kirman Group at Compass, Ben Becal at Revel Real Estate and Ethan Peskowitz at Westside Estate Agency.
