More than 100 associates from Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty’s San Diego, Orange County and Desert offices gathered at “The Floating Glass House” in Laguna Beach, designed by renowned architect Paul McClean, to take part in a special architectural event.  The event, which is part of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty’s Architectural Division’s Architectural Specialist Certification Series, was a lecture focused on contemporary architecture and architects in Orange County and Southern California.

Jan Horn, Executive Director of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty’s Architectural Division was the featured speaker. Horn, who has been a featured guest speaker at the Museum of Architecture, the Museum of Modern Art in La Jolla, the Prada Museum and the New School of Architecture in San Diego as well as a member of the Board of Directors of the Museum of Architecture and Design, believes there is a tremendous responsibility to provide specialized representation and marketing for these architecturally significant properties.

“Our Architectural Division enables us to raise the bar on the marketing of architectural houses and utilizes the connections we have cultivated in the architecture community,” says Horn. “Through our certification program, our agents are able to provide their clients with a significant advantage in the representation of their unique architectural homes.”

In order to complete Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty’s Architectural Certification Series, agents must attend five lectures as well as complete the sale of at least three architectural significant homes under the guidance of the Architectural Division. Lectures are held throughout the year at significant properties and landmarks throughout Southern California, each representing different and unique architectural elements and style.

The Paul McClean designed “Floating Glass House” located at 32013 Point Place in Laguna Beach, California is listed by the Stanfield Real Estate Group at Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty.



Privately perched on the bluff’s edge with a premium northwest coastal facing orientation, to take in the vibrant sunsets and city light views up to Palos Verdes, the estate is masterfully constructed of glass and steel with tiers of ‘floating’ levels which give an ocean view from every room and the sense that one is hovering upon the water.
