Art Collector's Loft by UNStudio

Art Collector's Loft by UNStudio

Last week, Colleen showed us the library of a collector in Minneapolis — a home designed for a collection. In this Greenwich Village loft, architects from Dutch firm UNStudio renovated a space with the addition of long walls and extensive built-in shelving to accommodate the owner's collections of art and books.

This home functions as a gallery, library and living space for an art collector. Though the loft is primarily white to showcase the art, a lighting scheme with LEDs of different hues and purposes tames the light and massive space.

The curved walls were designed by UNStudio out of fiberglass reinforced with gypsum panels. You can see more images and read the architects' full description of the project at Dezeen | Living with Books and Art by UNStudio.
