Larry Gagosian’s House Looks Even Better When It’s Not on Fire

  • Most stories about the fire at Larry Gagosian’s Amagansett home Toad Hall have featured smoky cell phone pictures, and while the rescued art inside was probably impressive, the house itself is something to behold. NSFW if your boss is a building (because it’s real estate porn! Snap!) The house was designed by the revered architect Charles Gwathmey for fellow architect François de Menil and completed in 1983. Mr. Gagosian bought the house in 1988 for $8 million and it’s undergone a few renovations since then (you won’t see Mr. Gagosian’s impressive flat screen here, unfortunately) but the lavish multi-tiered indoor gardens should give you a pretty good idea of the design ethos.
