Inside Beastie Boys’ Mike D's Malibu Estate / Architectural Digest / 2017


Footnotes

The architects we met universally wanted to tear down all the existing structures and build a pristine new version of our compound. This would require way more money and patience than we had. Then we talked to our friend Barbara Bestor, whom we’d known for years. Barbara had kids, and she understood how we wanted to live. She also had experience working within tight money constraints. A quick alliance was struck. Barbara would do all the architecture, and I would oversee the interiors, collaborating closely with her team. We were already in construction on our Brooklyn home, which I was also designing, so I felt prepared to handle the job. ➡︎
