510 Arkell: A Geometric Beverly Hills Masterpiece

Located in a corner lot surrounded by trees, hillsides, and blue skies, 510 Arkell is a property creates an array of mood lighting ambiances.



In the Trousdale Estates, 510 Arkell a Four-bedroom, Five-bathroom Minimalist Home Was Designed by Mexico’s Top Architects, Miguel Ángel Aragonés and Rafael Aragonés

“Color is inherent to many examples of Mexican architecture over hundreds of years and a natural step for us is using modern technology to play with this element at night,” says architect Rafael Aragonés, who designed the project with Miguel Ángel Aragonés.

“The house and its walls are transformed through LED-colored lighting, transporting you to a different mood and context.”

This intimate refuge—which comprises an atrium, reflective pools, a spa and a media room, among others—gives a feeling of openness with opportunities to enjoy the expansive views of the surrounding natural environment in a serene atmosphere.

“The built perimeter of the project is confined by privacy walls that create an intimate courtyard for every room,” says Rafael Aragonés.

“Turning into a corner and not knowing what comes next—this is perhaps what I like the most when taking a walk throughout any city. Why not try to recreate this inside your own private space?”

A gourmet kitchen with Miele appliances, terrazzo floors, Poliform custom-made cabinetry, built-in modules and closets, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system make these 7,500 square feet extremely comfortable. 

“Buyers value their privacy, security and luxurious lifestyle, and are willing to pay a premium to get it,” says listing agent Karen Sanchez of The Aaron Kirman Group at Compass

Trousdale is a historic area in a category all its own, the best Beverly Hills has to offer,” adds listing agent Yawar Charlie of The Aaron Kirman Group at Compass.
