James Jannard is what you would call a “serial entrepreneur.” The American designer and businessman founded Oakley in 1975 and launched Red Digital Cinema Camera Company — a photography and VR manufacturer that created visuals for the likes of The Great Gatsby, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheusetc — in 2007.

One of the several homes that Jannard owns is a Brutalist house located in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. The imposing 18,000 square feet citadel was designed by iDGroup architects and inspired by the Stonehenge. The structure took five years to complete and features a giant circular courtyard lead to a rectangular house covered in exposed concrete and aluminum. A metal door opens to an elliptic car park which looks onto the central lounge area, over an infinity pool and out to a spanning downtown LA view.
