Fashion Mogul Charles Park Makes Spectacular Entry Into Custom Home Design

 
 

Park, who entered LA's garment manufacturing industry 35 years ago, has built a California fashion empire based in Downtown LA. His firm's labels, Pure Sugar, Sugarlips, Cream & Sugar and Jonesy, are coveted by customers of top retailers worldwide, including Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's.

Park spared no expense in shaping his first home, and every inch of the seven-bedroom, eleven-bath residence reflects his unique vision. A stunning six-foot Mooi chandelier, two sets of floating staircases, and an original Andy Warhol greet guests at the entrance. Over a million dollars in furnishings by B&B Italia, Minotti, and Gandia Blasco are offset by the latest in home inspirations and technology, including 33 soaring floor to ceiling  Rimadesio Italian glass magnetic doors. Unique Delta Lighting from Belgium — 400 lights at $1,000 per light — is fully dimmable for endless ambience effects. Fully integrated Crestron automation and environment controls make adjustment of all household systems — audio/visual, lighting, shading, IT, security and HVAC — as easy as the push of a button.

For the main level and all baths, Parks selected Nano Glass, a scratch- and stainproof stone composite slab. All carpeting is custom-sized and hand-knotted. The oversized elevator is fronted by custom L'invisible bank vault doors, and even the air conditioning vents are configured vertically for a sleek, seamless appearance. Other highlights include a 600-bottle floating backlit wine cellar that opens with a thumbprint and a state-of-the-art home theater featuring a Sony 4K projector and a Dolby Atmos sound system, one of just 30 in the country.

One of many examples of Park's creative approach is the home's Precor fitness center, which he placed in a central location adjoining the master bedroom. The goal was to integrate an active lifestyle with the intimacy of the main living space. The gym is encased in Starphire, an ultra-clear, low-iron glass that has no green hue to impair the clearest view. The material is also used in all baths and railings. The active mode continues outside, with a 50' zero edge volleyball pool. A Baja shelf and five in-water chaises with umbrella holes and a sweeping multi-section outdoor barbecue patio ensure spectator comfort.

"This is a family home, not just a party house," Park says. "My goal wasn't to impress a buyer walking through for an hour. Each decision was made to delight the buyer who will live in this house for a lifetime."
