HOUSE FOR AN ART COLLECTOR
House for an Art Collector is a simple, modern residence in Glencoe, Illinois conceived as an effortless collage of planes, volumes, colors, and textures. The house is a composition of materials—glass, stucco, lead-coated copper, and mahogany—that define two building volumes and an interstitial space.
