Via Curbed LA: Lorcan O'Herlihy and his firm do most of their designing for dense, urban cities, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a talent for wide-open spaces, too. O'Herlihy's JAI House was completed in 2004 for entertainment lawyer Richard Roll with the help of Roll's wife, Julie Piatt, who did the interior design of the space. This 2007 Men's Health article explains that Roll and Piatt designed the home to reflect their personalities and lifestyle, not their bank account. Said Roll, "I wanted a home that could make me a better man, not just a trophy house that would prove how many zeros came at the end of my paycheck." From the look of these JAI House pictures, it seems that Roll was able to accomplish both, despite his modesty. The home is on the market for $2.95 million.
The three-bedroom, four-bathroom home has a yoga studio, a pool that begins indoors and flows outdoors, and a screening area on the roof for films and entertaining. The 3-acre backyard is a nature lover's dream, with easily accessible hiking and horse trails and a fruit tree grove and vegetable garden. JAI House has been used as a filming and shooting location for dozens of commercials, like these Old Navy, Burger King, and Skyy Vodka spots.
