The artwork of Joseph La Piana can be found in the homes of many high-profile names, including those of Donna Karan and Kevin Huvane.

But what artwork is on the walls of his home? The walls of his home are actually curved, as the structure was designed to be shaped like a nautilus shell—and we get to take a peek inside.

La Piana’s Shelter Island home is now on the market for $1,645,000 with listing agent Theresa Andrew of Corcoran Group Real Estate.

Curbed originally featured the 1,450-square-foot home a year ago, at which time the home was for sale through Sotheby’s with an asking price of $1,925,000.

La Piana “relies mainly on lighting and movement as inspiration for his work,” a representative from Corcoran told Curbed. “And 17 Congdon Road could be seen as a reflection of inspiration with floor to ceiling windows in much of the home, overlooking Lily Pond.”

In 2013, the property went for $575,000, and the median price for Shelter Island homes are less than $900,000. So $1,645,000 might be a stretch for the property—even after having undergone a price reduction.

The two bedroom, two bath home was built in 1972 on 2.3 acres of land, but was recently restored and features brick stone surfaces and cedar on the interior.

Outside, there’s a gunite pool and pool cabana.
