A ghost of the previous volumes, a tree in the garden, layers of nature and screening, privacy and display. A space to look at art, to sit, to contemplate. A place made from the elements of rusting steel, brick, glass, and light.
The private gallery for an art collector designed by Gianni Botsford provides a space to view and sort parts of the collection prior to hanging in the rest of the house. Conceived as part of the garden landscape, the Cor Ten extension is built to provide additional layers for the use of the garden- a room that opens out as a balcony, a room that serves as the gallery space, a concealed WC, and a protected outdoor space that serves as an outdoor kitchen.
