Malibu Cool: The Architecture of Douglas W. Burdge

MALIBU COOL: THE ARCHITECTURE OF DOUGLAS W. BURDGE -- Majestic, modern and taking advantage of every view possible from a bluff overlooking the ocean, this 10,000-square-foot house remodeled by Douglas W. Burdge never reveals its 1970s bones.  The use of organic materials throughout is a Burdge trademark.  Clients of the architect include Howie Mandel, Mark Burnett, Dick Van Dyke and Brooke Burke-Charvet.  The home's location -- Point Dume -- is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Malibu due to its coves, cliffs, headlands and beaches integrated with a state preserve.  Landscape design by Jay Griffith who used native species, a neutral palette and an abundance of evergreens.
