Traffic has been spiking for our 2010 photo gallery on Frank Gehry's Schnabel House, the Brentwood landmark whose owner set out to "take this gorgeous piece of art that happens to be a home" and give the 1980s design some 21st century technology -- all with Gehry's blessing.

Blame the flu that has hampered L.A. at Home all month, because we missed the news the first time around: As reported by our colleague Lauren Beale on Jan. 7, the Schnabel House has sold for $9.5 million -- thus explaining the sudden interest in our gallery and the appearance of Times photographer Lawrence K. Ho's pictures on other blogs (uncredited, ahem).

You can read Lizzie Garrett Mettler's original story and photo gallery about the collaboration between Gehry and former owner Jon Platt, Tony Award-winning producer of "Angels in America" and "Wicked" on Broadway.
