Note from JOHN It’s with great enthusiasm that I put the final touches on our 9th edition of M magazine. My vision to capture this magical place we call Orange County and home has far exceeded our previous issues. Maybe we’ve learned a little through the years but I feel it’s because my passion for this coastal inspired lifestyle has grown. This year has brought many exciting changes for our McMonigle Team, which is approaching an impressive $300 Million of dynamic Orange County real estate thus far in 2016—a 120% year-over-year increase! This is before the record sales price we will set for The Pelicans for an “off market” new build that will close escrow before another New Year of extraordinary promise begins. This strong momentum has led to the formation of our independent brokerage, McMonigle Group Corp, which launched this Fall from our casually chic new office in Corona Del Mar under the talented leadership of Broker Ezra Leyton. We are truly working with purpose as we command the 2017 luxury marketplace with vision and principles. By leading with vision, we are stronger and more sustainable in our practices. By utilizing disruptive but purpose- defined techniques including the latest in technology and innovation, we are “future proofing” our brand. and our valued relationships in the community. Our multi-platform approach to the real estate industry has been fine- tuned in a way that offers our clients and partners various forms of interaction and an experiential narrative to the Orange County lifestyle that no other team offers and in a way no other group embraces. In a world of near perpetual evolution, our clear philosophy to nurture our relationships, contribute to society and be the best in our class has me constantly seeking new ways to bring you our story. Whether its creating a “Lake Como Fantasy” in Newport Beach through our fashion shoot or seeking out the latest luxury experiences and products, I hope you enjoy the process as much as I enjoy bringing it to life.

BRANDON ARCHITECTS WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT BRANDON ARCHITECTS Boutique, full-service architectural design firm, Brandon Architects is proud to put art back into architecture. With their holistic approach to each project, wether it’s residential, commercial or hospitality building types, smart design equals better living. M Magazine caught up with Christopher Brandon, a design visionary that truly inspires and brings his clients along for the ride.

M: HOW DO YOU STRIKE A BALANCE BETWEEN THE BEAUTY OF THE ORANGE COUNTY LANDSCAPE AND YOUR PROJECTS? CHRISTOPHER BRANDON: Very carefully. We live in a unique place that gives us a wide variety of beautiful outdoor areas and a wonderful climate to go out and enjoy them. So, there’s always an opportunity to invite this beauty into our designs. We understand the importance of tying indoor space to the outdoors which is a paradigm we reach for with all of our projects. Whether it’s taking advantage of an expansive ocean view or looking inward and creating a beautifully landscaped courtyard there is always a solution to create something special with our surroundings. Orange County is a wonderful incubator for progressive indoor/outdoor design. There’s also a responsibility to reflect beauty back to the community and the sites that we design on. 74 | themcmonigleteam.com

M: HOW DOES ORGANIC LIVING AND ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES IMPACT YOUR DESIGNS? CHRISTOPHER BRANDON: Our mantra at Brandon Architects is “Smart Design leads to Better Living” and a cornerstone of this approach is socially responsible design. Environmental concerns are ever present and we try to respond with a wide range of thoughtful design solutions. Sometimes that’s as simple as building orientation and using natural daylighting and ventilation to create an energy efficient home. There’s been a growing trend in Orange County for organic living which is heartening and we consider it our responsibility to educate our clients on how that lifestyle can be influenced and enhanced by smart architectural design.

76 | themcmonigleteam.com

M: WHAT IS YOUR FANTASY PROJECT? CHRISTOPHER BRANDON: That’s difficult to say…any project could be. Every new project allows us the opportunity to create and design something that will leave a long lasting impact on those directly and indirectly experiencing it. Being able to take part in shaping the future with something so tangible and personal such as a home is special to us and something we’re grateful to be a part of but a fantasy project would not only create a happy client but somehow become a lasting icon of good design and SoCal living. There are few iconic homes in Orange County and it would be beyond cool to have a project regarded in that way some day.

M: WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT? CHRISTOPHER BRANDON: An ideal client would be someone who has an open mind and is willing to go down a path of discovery with us. We also ask that they be trusting of the process. Design is a journey and so much is learned during the process that rarely the first idea is the best one. It’s important for us that our clients understand the “why” behind our designs not just “what” they’re looking at. In order to design well we need to get inside their heads but we also like to get them inside ours as well. Once we get on that level great ideas start flowing from both sides of the table and we have a lot of fun with our clients.

M: WHAT MAKES YOU STAND OUT FROM OTHER ARCHITECT FIRMS? CHRISTOPHER BRANDON: We’re very proud of our process here at Brandon Architects. We have an experienced and talented team capable of bringing our designs to life throughout the process, from initial 2D sketches to detailed 3D renderings, live interactive animations and even more recently Virtual Reality. Good design is nothing if our clients can’t visualize and follow along on our journey. We strive to keep our clients inspired and emotionally engaged in the project so we have a lot of fun with different ways to present the design and with all the creativity and technology at our office we feel like we excel at just that.

On October 16, 2016, Laguna Art Museum opened a new exhibition to the public; Phillip K. Smith III: Bent Parallel. The exhibitions will close January 15, 2017. As this year’s featured commissioned artist for the museum’s Art & Nature festival (November 3-6), Phillip K. Smith III’s monumental installation Bent Parallel envelopes viewers in light, continuing the artist’s ongoing dialogue with color theory, optics, scale, and technology. Appearing as two intersecting color-field walls, the hinge-like structure merges surfaces to engender a perception of shifting and blending. It creates a third, material-less, zerothickness plane that mixes the adjacent colors and seems to extend the physical bounds of the space. The resulting environment appears simultaneously infinite and finite. Born in Los Angeles in 1972, Phillip K. Smith III received his Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design before returning to the Southern California desert where he was raised. Building upon explorations in the perception of light, color, and space, he creates intensely physical and seemingly ephemeral sculptures. His large-scale, temporary installations include the internationally renowned Lucid Stead (2013) in Joshua Tree, California, and Reflection Field (2014) and Portals (2016), both of which debuted at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Phillip K. Smith III, Bent Parallel October 16, 2016 – January 15, 2017 Laguna Art Museum is located at 307 Cliff Drive in Laguna Beach, on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Cliff Drive. Hours and Admission Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday: 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Thursday: 11:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.

NICK JONES: I don’t think anyone can create a better racing circuit than Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Fast straights, high-speed corners, heavy deceleration zones, and large elevation changes make this circuit not only fun to watch, but also challenging for even the best of drivers. It is not uncommon for it to be raining at Spa

PORSCHE OPENS NEW $60 MILLION EXPERIENCE CENTER PURVEYORS OF POWER Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), officially opened its second Porsche Experience Center (PEC LA) in the United States. The new $60 million facility serves as the company’s premier West Coast destination for the public, including automotive enthusiasts and Porsche customers. Located on the 405 Freeway in Carson, California, convenient to three of the Los Angeles area airports, the 53-acre complex is also the new home of Porsche Motorsport North America. The PEC LA features a driver development track with eight educational modules totaling 4.1 miles, a changing race car exhibit, and a fine-dining restaurant. Guests and corporate groups visiting the new facility can hone their driving skills on courses built to demonstrate the power, responsiveness and safety of Porsche sports cars. The company opened its first $100 million Experience Center and North American headquarters in May 2015 in Atlanta. With facilities on each coast, the U.S. is the only country with two Experience Centers, representing the largest investments for Porsche outside Germany to date. “This is a significant milestone for Porsche, as we further expand our presence in the United States,” said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “Our decision to open a second Experience Center in North America underscores our commitment to the largest sports car market worldwide.” If California were a country, it would be the fifth largest market, accounting for 23 percent of Porsche vehicles sold in the United States. Of the 51,756 Porsche vehicles PCNA delivered to customers in the U.S. last year, 12,016 were sold in California. Visitors to the PEC LA can enjoy instructor-led, 90-minute experiences on the driver development track in Porsche sports cars. The eight training modules include two handling circuits, an ice hill, an off-road course, a dynamics area, a launch control and acceleration straight, as well as a low friction handling circuit, low friction circle, and hydraulic kick-plate.

The new complex is also home to Porsche Motorsport North America (PMNA), the only authorized sales, parts, and service provider in the United States and Canada for all purpose-built Porsche race cars such as the 911 GT3 Cup, 911 GT3 R, and the Cayman GT4 Clubsport. PMNA also provides engine and transmission servicing, on-site race support at multiple international racing series, and certain restoration services. A glass wall inside the atrium of the new Porsche Experience Center provides visitors with a clear view into the Porsche Motorsport North America workshop, where historic race cars are repaired, track vehicles are maintained, and race cars from owners and collectors are exhibited.

MR. G’S BISTRO DELIVERS NEIGHBORHOOD-APPROPRIATE REFINEMENT TO BALBOA ISLAND By Rich Manning As Balboa Island’s main drag, Marine Avenue is perfectly chill. The compact three-block road is chock full of restaurants and boutiques instantly made breezy by the island’s singular sense of maritime whimsy. It represents the good life dressed in Bermuda shorts and a Hawaiian shirt, and it seemed like a proper bistro was the lone element missing from its succinct stretch. Enter Mr. G’s Bistro; a contemporary eatery perfect for those times when you need clocks to stop and worries jettisoned, which is the very point of Balboa Island’s existence. The person behind the venue is Guiseepe Accardi – Mr. G himself – whom has been part of South Coast Plaza’s sleek dining scene for the past several years and knows a thing or two behind delivering a conduit for elegant, fun times. His vision for Mr. G’s Bistro is one partially fueled by sophistication, but presented with a distinct Balboa twist. “I love Balboa’s ambiance,” Accardi states. “However, I realized what could fit great into the neighborhood was a restaurant that people could feel comfortable dressing up whether that be for a date night or just going out with friends. That said, I wanted to bring in some of my own style into the neighborhood, which is elegant and tasteful but relaxed.”

140 | themcmonigleteam.com

ISLAND ELEGANCE The food here is carefully attuned to match Accardi’s vision. The menu’s anchor is modern California cuisine that’s as fresh and unfussy as a sail through Newport Harbor, but it also draws inspiration from various corners of the globe – a spark that Accardi says could ignite at any time. “I don’t want to box us into a cuisine because I think it will be more spontaneous,” he says. “You might find an incredible pasta on the menu or a beautiful dish with Asian flavors on the menu.” Accompanying this eclectic cuisine is a solid wine list highlighting wineries such as the exquisite Bello Family Vineyards in Napa’s worldclass Rutherford Valley region. Ultimately, the goal behind Mr. G’s bistro is to connect the space, its cuisine, and its location with an atmospheric through-line that transcends the realm of sumptuous food and wine. “Mr G.’s is a place with not only delicious food but one that our guests can call their second home,” Accardi says. “I want everyone to feel like they’re visiting a friend’s house.”
