Though primarily known for his steel-and-glass midcentury moderns in Palm Springs, Donald Wexler didn’t restrict his work to the desert. In 2008, the visionary designer collaborated with architect Henry Buckingham on this live-work space in the Hollywood Hills for Wexler’s son, art photographer Glen Wexler.

Located in the Hollywood Knolls about a mile northwest of the Hollywood Reservoir, the Brutalist-style property measures 6,020 square feet and has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a formal dining room, a media room, multiple offices and lounges, and a studio/gallery big enough to roller-skate in.

Notable interior features include 16-foot ceilings, polished concrete and hardwood floors, two fireplaces, professional-grade media equipment, skylights, clerestory windows, and sliding glass doors.

Outside, there’s a solar-heated saltwater pool and fire pit, plus two spacious roof decks, one with an infinity spa and waterfall, connected via a sky bridge.

On a 10,099-square-foot lot, the property is listed with an asking price of $4.495 million.
