Situated in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, atop three tiers of hillside garden borders that have been carved into the hillside in a sweeping stepped arrangement, 1201 Laurel Way is a vast home in an impressive self-contained enclosure. Downtown Los Angeles, Catalina, and the coastline of California are sprawled out in stunning view from this home, and it is this view that became the inspiration for the build team: developer Richard Papalian, designer Michael Palumbo, and architect Marc Whipple.

The spectacular house holds a highly contrasting architectural environment where romance meets sophistication in a truly contemporary and dramatic fashion; Michael Palumbo chose to implement a tasteful “white chocolate, dark chocolate” theme using some of the finest imported materials, such as Hera Limestone from the Sinai Peninsula, Wenge wood, Super Thassos tiles, custom-engineered Renlita doors, and German-made Schucco windows.
