The Oscar-winning producer enlists architect Mark Rios and designer Waldo Fernandez to renovate his scenic Santa Monica manor. Film and TV producer Brian Grazer transformed a rambling and eclectic mansion in Santa Monica, California, into a crisply modern retreat for his family. Mark Rios of Rios Clementi Hale Studios oversaw the architectural work, and Waldo Fernandez of Waldo’s Designs masterminded the interiors.
Mark Rios pared the existing structure down to simple barn-inspired forms and clad the exterior in cedar, which he stained gray to complement the slate roof.
