House for Art Collectors 2000

The House for Art Collectors is a new residence to house art and books, the two great passions of it’s occupants and the basis of the architectural brief. Requirements were simple; a place to live and work, to display their art collection and to store their library.

The house had to be spacious with a central void space and to be modernist in style, both owners being passionate collectors and lovers of modern and contemporary art and architecture.
