More on the Mohammed

New, 3 comments

The New York Times gets some background on the Robert Crockett-designed Mohammed Residence in Santa Monica, which we visited a couple weeks ago. Crockett's client was a 60 year old Muslim grandmother named Ruksana Mohammed who wanted room for entertaining her large family, lots of fresh air and light, and plenty of bathrooms for performing ritual ablutions. She and her husband bought their original house in 1978 for $334,000 and ended up spending six years and $4.5 million on its replacement. Final washroom tally? 10. [NYT, previously]
