Home of the Week: An artsy architectural in Brentwood

Irish architect Lorcan O’Herlihy, son of Oscar-nominated actor Dan O’Herlihy, has a knack for mixing art and architecture in his works across Southern California, and this modern spot in Brentwood is no different. Tucked among trees, the sleek residence receives plenty of sun from walls of glass and skylights. A pivoting glass door at the heart of the home opens outside, where a lush courtyard adds a kitchen and fireplace.
