The incredible beachfront villa featured in the Beatles-inspired movie Yesterday could be your dream home.
The film, which has recently hit cinemas, centres around Jack Malik, a man who suddenly gets into an accident and wakes up as the only person who remembers the iconic British group.
According to a representative from Universal Pictures, the home featured in the film is called the Cooper Wave House,
reports. It was built in the late 1950s and designed by the California architect Harry Gesner.
'Narratively, it also serves as a contrast to Jack’s previous life,' the rep explains of the luxurious beachfront home. 'Early in the film, he’s walking down a beach in Frinton-on-Sea in rural England, which features little, brightly coloured huts on stilts. Later, in this scene with Debra, with his life about to change, he’s suddenly on a very different beach in an entirely different kind of house on stilts.'
In the film, the Wave House is home to Kate Mckinnon's character, a hotshot music industry executive who represents Ed Sheeran — played by himself. In the film, she decides to take Jack under her wing to make him a star.
93-year-old architect, Harry Gesner, spoke to Curbed back in 2016 about his iconic house and movie location. 'I built the Wave House around a series of curved, laminated beams,' he said. 'I wanted a shape like you'd find in the ocean. I really wanted something that was suitable to that site.' Harry is said to have first sketched the Wave House on the back of his surfboard using just a wax pencil. He sites nature as his main inspiration for his designs.
Apparently, Danish architect Jorn Utzon — designer of the Sydney Opera House — was so impressed with the Wave House that he used it as inspiration for the iconic building in Australia.
