Artery Residence

Project Description

When an art collector and his wife asked us to design and build them a new home, we used their extensive collection as the genesis of the residence. Artwork fills the lower level. This sub-grade gallery is the conceptual “heart” of the home. The art flows from the main gallery into the circulation spaces of the other levels, spilling out into the hallways and vertical atriums. These “arteries” give the residence its name

The main level is clad in limestone and contains the living spaces-the living room, kitchen, dining room, and his and her offices. Five upper level bedrooms – for the couple, their two children, and two lucky guests – cantilever dramatically. They take the form of cedar-wrapped boxes with expansive wood windows screened by aluminum louvers. The deep overhangs taper down to a thin knife edge.
