Luxury Home in Hollywood Hills Is Most Recent Offering from Multitalented Designer
Los Angeles — Famed designer Bradley Bayou announces the completion of the “Couture Home at Swallow Drive,” the first design-and-development project completed by the designer’s Los Angeles–based practice.
The 9,000+ square-foot contemporary residence sits prominently in the famed Bird Streets of the West Hollywood Hills. It is a masterpiece, with walls of retractable glass framing panoramic views colliding with ancient stone walls to achieve the ultimate juxtaposition of textures and create the optimum indoor/outdoor architectural statement.
The home—designed using the finest materials, including imported limestone flooring, custom decorative iron work, Venetian plaster, and terrazzo—features five bedrooms, 5 full baths as well as 2 powder rooms on 2 split levels. The custom kitchen includes a seating area and open living space that extends through oversized retractable glass doors to an outdoor BBQ / bar and entertaining space. The property boosts luxurious amenities, including a private Zen garden, indoor/outdoor water features, a lounge with bar, a screening room, a glass elevator, a 6 car garage, an infinity pool and a spa.
The property was designed and developed by the newly launched firm Bradley Bayou Design & Development, founded to bring the ultimate in couture design to the home. Bayou, a highly successful fashion designer who helmed his eponymous couture-fashion label and served as Creative Director of Halston, took the lessons of the luxury fashion world and applied them to the home.
“I saw a niche at the high end of the market of people who wanted the very finest design but also wanted a turn-key solution where clients can walk in and find that every detail has been considered and perfected,” Bayou said.
Bayou, who has completed more than 25 design and renovation projects to date, sees the transition from fashion design to home design as a natural evolution of his career.
“Ultimately, whether designing a dress or a home, you are making decisions about scale, texture, and finish. Just as a couture dress can make a woman look and feel amazing, we wanted to achieve the same thing with a home—make the people inside it look and feel sexy and beautiful,” explains the designer.
