A little over a decade ago, Stanley Saitowitz was engaged to design a futuristic mega-home to be built atop the hundred-plus-acre King Mountain site in Marin, a site which has now hit the market listed for $39 million (as we first reported this morning).
Dubbed “Omega 3,” the modern home was envisioned as a series of four concrete and glass bars laid into the hill.
The home’s main bar was designed to contain the kitchen and family room, with playrooms below and bedrooms above. The eastern bar was designed as the master suite. The home’s entry and formal living areas are contained in the middle bar. And the western bar/bridge was designed to contain “the music archives, studio, and work room for the rock-star owner.”
And if a plugged-in reader is correct, the aforementioned “rock-star owner” is, or at the very least was, Metallica’s drummer, Lars Ulrich. No official word on why Ulrich abandoned the project.
