Our clients’ art collection was outgrowing their house. With limited opportunities to expand, they asked if we could rework the interiors to better accommodate their paintings and sculptures. This called for an intervention on two axes. At the ground plane, a new steel and glass window wall erases the boundary between interior and exterior spaces expanding the feel of the space and allowing the clients to fully enjoy their collection from the garden and vice versa. In the core of the house, a new stair unifies all four levels and provides generous, well-illuminated landings. Ghosted behind semi-transparent planes, the stair appears to float in harmony with the art.
