The design evokes a gallery-like quality, as the interiors spotlight the art collection of the residents. The home centers around the main living space which extends from the front to the back entrance and features the original sunken living room. White walls contrast with ebony and steel floors with a beeswax wall that hides the stair and creates the backdrop for sculptural art, anchoring the public space in this mid-century modern home. From the buckshot flooring to the granite countertops, the juxtaposition of organic and inorganic materials creates an atmosphere of minimalist elegance and a celebration of natural materials.
