Bryan Cranston’s House

Bryan Cranston, aka Walter White in the cult TV drama Breaking Bad-and Hal in the long running comedy series Malcolm in the Middle, has proudly directed the building of his family’s ’green’ beach house that has been Platinum LEED certified. The Passive House design, the very first of its kind in Ventura County, California, is the result of a team of professionals in architecture, engineering, construction and design that were to fulfil their clients desire not only for superb eco-friendly function, but for beautiful form too. Photovoltaic and water heating solar panels, radiant heated floors, SIPs wall systems, rain water collection, recycled materials, LED lighting, no VOC paints and stains and Energy Star appliances, are just a few of the ecologically responsible elements that make up this amazing home.

Cranston is insistent that function without form is no fun at all, so he and his wife Robin set out to prove to the world that sustainable living doesn’t mean that the style and comforts of a modern lifestyle have to suffer. The exterior of the building commands attention with its contemporary facia, and the interior is a place of light bright décor and crisp furnishings.

The house was affectionately named the 3Palms in homage to the three long-standing mature Mexican Fan Palms that the couple wished to preserve on the property; unfortunately one of the trees had to be sacrificed in favor of essential support caissons, but a plan is in place to transplant a palm into another location on the lot, and make the place fit for its title once more.
