This home was designed for an emerging artist who creates work in the Abstract Expressionist style. The goal was to design a domicile in which the artist can be immersed in the work of abstract painter Agnes Martin, one of the most revered figures in her field. The dwelling has a living area, a work studio, and a gallery space for the emerging artist. It also contains a gallery featuring the work of Agnes Martin, who produced tranquil paintings often composed of grids and stripes. The home’s minimalist aesthetic embodies the spirit of her work.
