The idea takes off from the owners’ extensive art collection. In the same way that art can sometimes temporarily transport one to another realm, the house is envisioned to be a portal to a safe oasis – a haven from the outside world and all else that come with it (stress, pressure, judgement, danger, constraint). A private space where moments and memories can be ‘framed’ and be remembered.
It is designed without the external pressures of style nor trend, but is a portrait of the collective personality of the family within.
The architecture simply aims to be a backdrop for their art collection and its multitude of meanings – a home that encourages creativity, imagination, intelligence, and purpose.
