Inside Patrick Dempsey's Malibu Home Designed by Frank Gehry | Architectural Digest

Patrick Dempsey (aka Dr. Derek Shepherd aka McDreamy on "Grey's Anatomy") talks with Architectural Digest about his Malibu house designed by Frank Gehry.

The actor and his wife, Jillian, adapt one of Frank Gehry’s earliest houses as a vibrant and light-filled family compound

At their residence in Malibu, California, actor Patrick Dempsey and his wife, Jillian, are joined by their children—daughter Talula and sons Darby and Sullivan—and their French bulldog, Horton, in an outdoor dining area appointed with Teak Nichols Design furniture. Conceived by architect Frank Gehry in the late 1960s, the house has been updated with landscaping by Shrader Design and decor by Estee Stanley Interior Design.

A pivoting glass panel functions as the front door; the wall sculpture of fluorescent tubes is by Robert Irwin.

Entrance Hall - A vintage Jacques Adnet daybed from Blackman Cruz beckons in the entrance hall.

Living Room - Chaise longues by Brenda Antin flank a Jillian Dempsey sculpture in the living room; the antique mirror is from Blackman Cruz, and the club chair is by Richard Shapiro/Studiolo. Custom-made sofas upholstered in a Great Plains fabric stand before the living room fireplace, which is surmounted by a Waldo’s Designs mirror; the painting at left is by Thomas Helbig, the large round table is by Dos Gallos Furniture, and the Alma Allen low stool (used as an end table) is from Heath Ceramics. Jillian Dempsey made the sculpture displayed on the cocktail table.

Dining Area - Fashion photographs by Melvin Sokolsky are displayed in a dining area outfitted with chairs from Lucca Antiques and a custom-made Teak Nichols Design table; in the background hangs a 1960s Raak light fixture from Obsolete.

Outdoor Dining Area - Shrader Design created the outdoor dining space, which is shaded by a metal-framed wicker canopy.

Kitchen - The kitchen features a concrete sink and countertops as well as a Wolf range and a Best hood.

Studio - The sculpture studio’s custom-made Shrader Design sofa is clad in a Great Plains fabric and features decorative pillows by Brenda Antin; the cocktail tables are by Lucca Antiques, the leather daybed/bench is by Caste, the floor lamp is from Obsolete, and the Moroccan carpet is from Lawrence of La Brea. A drafting table and stools are also among the furnishings in the sculpture studio.

Master Bedroom - Ginger, another family dog, rests in the master bedroom, where a Teak Nichols Design bed is accented with Deborah Sharpe Linens pillows and a throw from Monc XIII; the mirror and the hanging chair are 1960s, and the table lamp is by Blackman Cruz.

Master Bath - In the master bath, a Jillian Dempsey sculpture sits atop a rustic table.

Talula’s room is furnished with custom-made burlap curtains, ABC Carpet & Home bed linens, a chair by Brenda Antin, and floor cushions by Nickey Kehoe.

Pool - Darby and Sullivan leap into the swimming pool, which is surrounded by a recycled-wood deck; the seating is cushioned with Perennials fabrics.

Airstream Trailer - An Airstream trailer serves as a romantic hideaway.

Garden - Flowers, herbs, and vegetables flourish in a garden’s raised beds, which are constructed from reclaimed scaffolding; the area is paved with gravel and stabilized decomposed granite.

Fire Pit - A cushioned concrete seating area with a fire pit offers a cozy spot for relaxing outdoors.

The estate also features a chicken coop made of recycled wood, miniature donkeys, outdoor oven, and a tin house.

I love his approach to life! Almost everyone they interview for AD walks throughout their home pointing out expensive objects they have collected over the years....basically bragging. Patrick Dempsey points out things that give his children a good experience in life. Best Interview. Cool House.

Both Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey have a "Gray's Anatomy" book in their house. it's literally spelt like that in those books.
This is one of my favourite AD videos ever, because of how well informed Patrick was with his home and his surroundings. There was a level of respect to where things came from and how to be economical with designing something without completely disrupting its natural state. Which is so important. I could watch this over and over (and I have) and will never get bored of it! That being said, every time I go scout for apartments or rooms to rent, I always try to put myself in the same headspace. I don't have a degree in architecture or interior design, but I can surely appreciate a well made space.

Patrick Dempsey,
I love how you say:
"You are a caretaker of a House, and have to be very careful to nurture it and sustain it....!"
You can see with his family and their values, the kids are well grounded & he is in his environment of peace & tranquility
Yha Lou
Yha Lou:
Geez! I need to stop liking guys like him(out of reach, older and from different country).But he seems like man of substance and charm that guys doesnt have.
Just hearing his voice again hit me more than I want to admit 😭😳
I love that he appreciates the house itself by saying that it looks great with nothing in it, but still the fact that he wants in to be comfortable, warm and homey (unlike some celebs) and making people feel inviting, relax and casual so he added all these plants, sculptures, beautiful carpets, bits and pieces, and it turns out looking very homey and lovely. Such a great home, with every space seems to be utilised like the garden, and even the mini zoo. Great job Patrick!!
Rudi Makole
