The Modern Art House

These three modern marvels have something in common: all house museum-worthy art collections. And not just stored in seldom-used rooms or hallways.

As one of the homeowners said in an interview in Art News, they want “to live with the art, not just visit it.” Fortunately, these three sets of owners collaborated with architects who excel at creating livable spaces around contemporary art.

The University Park residence above, was redesigned specifically for the owners’ sizable holdings of paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. Designed by Overland Partners. Interiors by Cadwallader Design.

McKinney residence. Architecture by Booziotis & Company. Interiors by Nancy Leib.

Strait Lane residence. Original architecture by Philip Johnson. Renovations and interiors by Bodron + Fruit.
