Stone I have been to see the mansion, or rather Castle the techno musician, Moby bought in the Hollywood Hills. Move from a small apartment in New York, in Little Italy, to be rigorous, a fairy tale Castle is a big step.
If, in addition, the previous owners include the Rolling Stones y Aldous Huxley and the interior is designed in 1920, by Frank Lloyd Wright, is a giant step.
To Moby (real name is Richard Melville, descendant of the famous writer author of) Moby Dick, (hence his nom de guerre) global success ensued you go, from the soundtrack of Twin Peaks Remember Laura Palmer? But we are going with its refuge because it is priceless.
A castle with three acres of land surrounded by a stone wall, a doorway to the style of Disney and a kidney-shaped pool, called The Wolf’s Lair, in honor of its first owner, L. Milton Wolf. On the hill overlooking the Castle, on a tall pole, a crescent moon-shaped lamp gets that there is always the reflection of a moon pool.
Some walls are adorned by the original plans that you have made Frank Lloyd Wright framed house. Certainly there is no doubt that they are works of art.
When Moby took the castle the restoration work It looked like a work of Titans. The roof was leaking, the walls of the room had been painted dark gray soils were black, not to mention the wall above the Gothic fireplace, It was covered with shells.
According to the own King of Techno, We searched and found all of the original details of the 1920s and it tried to renew the House around all the original architectural elements, which means to get rid of everything from 1945.
Naturally the plumbing, electricity, bathrooms and kitchen are completely new, Moby hired the firm of The Angeles architecture and design of Tim Barber for reform and to replace all the windows and add the baths to the main house. We liked especially the detail of dedicated drawing of Homer Simpson from Matt Groening.
It is also, to a large extent, the opposite of the houses I’ve lived in my childhood that were very small and dark. Basically, a Freudian in its first three days of school would be able to find out the psychological impulse, is the House I dreamed when I was a poor boy.
A platform for meditation Moby can see on very clear days, the Pacific Ocean. Well, it seems that Moby It has everything you need to fulfill his dream, except for the Lady of the Castle voluntary?
