Gallery House

One of the owners of this minimalist home is a fine artist who needed a tranquil, day lit space to show off her beautiful art collection, including her own sculptures. She was very involved in the design of the interior spaces and details and selection of materials. Her favorite painting of a bulldog features prominently in the entry and can be seen once inside the screened approach. The main spaces were conceived as a gallery for art display, as well as a place with a strong open connection to a covered outdoor terrace and backyard space to the north. Clerestory windows let south sunlight in for most of the day. KD, Denver was also involved in designing the kitchen and living room display.
