The home was designed by Bruce Makowsky. Makowsky is a famous real-estate developer who was once described by the New York Times as a "60-year-old walking luxury ad."
According to an interview the Times ran with Makowsky, he designed to be something like a "land yacht." He noticed that there were major design and decoration discrepancies between the homes of the super wealthy and their yachts. This house is his answer.
It's like a house built by aliens.
