Following a production in the vicinity of San Diego, MARCUS PHILIPP SAUER stopped by the Razor House, a unique villa made of massive concrete and glass, constructed in 2007 on the sheer cliffs of La Jolla, California, a chic suburb with an incredible view of the Pacific.
“This architectural masterpiece, constructed over a period of five years, is an unparalleled trophy object which was designed by Wallace E. Cunningham, one of the 100 best designers of Architectural Digest. Set behind gates and constructed from white polished concrete and floor-to-ceiling glass, this magnum opus suspends the boundaries of ordinary living and commands amazing uninterrupted views of the ocean, open sky and natural landscape.” photographer Marcus Philipp Sauer tells us.
Resting high above Torrey Pines State Reserve, this 11,000-square-foot piece de resistance houses four bedrooms and six baths, a two-level guest house affording the same impressive view, an underground garage for more than six vehicles and private access to Black’s Beach. Impeccable design, unrivaled quality and a paramount location make this property a true piece of art.
Singer-Songwriter Alicia Keys and her husband, music producer Kasseem Dean – aka Swizz Beatz – payed around 20.8 million US dollars in 2020 for the spectacular object, which is said to have served as the inspiration for Tony Stark’s Razor Point Malibu lair from the Iron Man film.
La Jolla, one of the most picturesque towns on California’s Pacific coast, has been the home of Theodore ‘Dr. Seuss’ Geisel, actor Gregory Peck, Jonas Salk, who developed the Polio vaccine, astronaut Sally Ride, NFL pioneer Paul Brown and actress Raquel Welch.
