RoehrSchmitt was brought in to freshen up an interior for this condo for art collectors. As we delved into how they lived we discovered that they needed a space for outdoor entertaining that wasn’t subject to the pitiless sun on the south-facing patio off of their living room.  To remedy this we cleared out several seldom used rooms to create a new entertainment space adjacent to a second north-facing patio.

This move effectively created a home with two wings – a warm southern space for winter living, and a cool north-facing space for summer entertaining. The dramatic curving path between the wings of the house serves as a gallery for the couple’s extensive collection of art. We unified the condo around the new minimalist spaces by simplifying the existing living room and kitchen with a reduced materials palette featuring makore wood and translucent glass.
