Have you ever walked into a home and instantly thought that you entered a museum? If you said no, then you’re in for a treat. As its name suggests, Muse(um) House is much more than a house turned museum; it is a fun play on the architectural journey that recognizes the ability for architects to truly let their imaginations run wild when they’re given a blank canvas and told to not only focus on the architecture, but to create a space that will support an extensive art collection without overshadowing it.
Muse(um) House features the aesthetics that you expect to find in a museum, while simultaneously keeping traditional frames that are often seen in homes. The use of raw concrete, unfinished steel, rusty tin, and OSB panels serve as a subtle nod to the owner’s rich collection. The diverse materials also support the idea that the collection and home should work together by taking turns in the spotlight. From the creative hidden spaces and the floor-to-ceiling glass panels to the lap pool, this house offers a sense of wonderment and delight around every corner.
