Celebrity Malibu Beach Home Hits the Market

Renovated Smart Home Features Custom Designs of Premier Firm ADG Lighting

Another celebrity estate has hit the real estate market in the coveted neighborhood of Broad Beach, situated in the northern area of Malibu. 

Renovated by noted architect and interior designer Michael Lee, the former estate of “All in the Family” actor Carroll O’Connor is adorned with modern lanterns designed and manufactured by ADG Lighting in both the pool area and at the stairway. 

The two-level, 3,700 square foot home is located at 30826 Broad Beach Road, and comes with a sauna, four cabana style bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and french doors. This smart home also comes equipped with solar panels and Tesla battery backup. 

Gerald Olesker, founder and CEO of ADG Lighting, was thrilled at the outcome of the renovation. “The beauty of the location, combined with the Moroccan architecture of the home, made this project a masterpiece,” said Olesker. 

Gerald Olesker applies his background as a trained architect on all of the custom design projects he has worked on. His firm has several projects in the works across Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and in major cities across the country. ADG Lighting’s custom work can be seen in showrooms across the country, with locations in West Hollywood, Austin, and San Luis Obispo. 

The home is currently listed by DeeDee Cortese of Coldwell Banker Malibu.

Think About Your Kitchen in 2016

ADG Lighting_kitchen_design

The design, function and use of modern kitchens is always evolving. We love our kitchens! They are a creative place where we create and where we congregate. Our friends and family gather in them to share and celebrate life. It is estimated that we spend an average of 3 hours a day in the kitchen. It is an integral part of the overall living space of our homes and worthy of our attention to create a comfortable creative space.

For 2016, one of the major trends in kitchen design is the change in lighting. Our kitchens in 2016 will reflect designs that are a flashback to the 80’s, with integrated living space designs that have a soft-nutted color palette and texture-on-texture contrast. The lighting changes will be based in well-lit cabinetry. No longer will we depend on ceiling lighting or well placed lamps to provide the proper lighting effect. We will see the use of low-voltage lighting strips as accent pieces through the cabinetry. The use of LED lighting will be the norm. The trend will offer the ability to offer better mood setting designs, in combination with recessed can lights. Families will live life more in their kitchens during 2016. Open up the space and let the design enhance the quality of life.

Lighting plays a key role in design of a space. As you look at remodel and renovation projects in your kitchen in 2016, partner with the right expert to bring creativity and function to your project through lighting. ADG Lighting is the right choice for your project and would be honored to partner with you today! Go to to schedule a design meeting.

Award Winning Condos in Marina del Rey Available for Sale

One of the highlights of our work here at ADG Lighting was the opportunity to work on Latitude 33, a 45-unit condominium complex in Marina del Rey that was once an office building. Built in 2010, the complex received much recognition for its adaptive reuse of an old building, including two Gold Nugget Merit Awards.
