See Inside A Modern Los Angeles Compound Featuring Invader Street Art

Luxury interior architecture is often designed with art in mind—blank spans of wall for large paintings, open spaces for sculpture. Less common, however, are homes that also display prized pieces of art on their exterior facade, such as this recently listed modern Venice masterpiece.

Sitting a few blocks away from the beach, the 3,400-square-foot contemporary compound houses the first residential commissioned artwork by famed French street artist Invader.

The anonymous artist’s signature pixelated mosaic work can be seen from the street behind a hedged fence on the outside corner of one of the property’s multiple structures.

Partially inspired by the urban warehouses of Austin and Los Angeles, and railroad-station-turned-arts-center Bergamot Station near Santa Monica, the home’s facade features sleek corrugated metal with pops of vibrant orange, pink and green accenting the black industrial hull.

Other prominent artworks include a mural paying homage to the late singer-songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston covering the side of the two-story studio/garage.

Artistic flair is not just on the outside. High, exposed ceilings, polished concrete floors and colorful statement walls evoke a fashionable factory befitting Warhol’s superstars.

Walls of glass and bi-folding doors throughout the three-bedroom, five-bathroom compound allow for the many exterior works to be admired from both inside and out.

In the main house, open concept space is gently divided by a split-level floor plan, with stairs ascending to the kitchen and dining area. The airy primary suite encompasses the entire second story.

Also found on the Abbot Kinney adjacent property is a detached studio with a bathroom and a sunken courtyard, two roof decks and two covered parking spaces.

Priced at $8.25 million, the listing is held by Zach Goldsmith of Beverly Hills-based Hilton & Hyland.

Since the late ’90s, Invader’s pixelated pieces inspired by popular 8-bit Atari arcade games have been plastered on the streets of more than 65 cities across 33 countries. Similar to celebrated English artist Banksy, the urban artist’s identity remains unknown.

Hilton & Hyland is a founding member of Forbes Global Properties, a consumer marketplace and membership network of elite brokerages selling the world’s most luxurious homes.
