In this modern Midwest home, art and architecture blend as one to create a gallery-like residence for two prominent contemporary art collectors.

Filling 10,650 square feet of living spaces, art is intrinsically the heart of the home in this private dwelling designed by Missouri–based design studio and shop Hufft Projects. The traditional program of the house blends with gallery-like spaces, providing this family of renowned art collectors plenty of room to display their curated collection.

The below-grade gallery space much resembles a modern art gallery. White walls and concrete floors provide the ideal backdrop for the curated collection of art, accented by indirect lighting.

From the exterior, this three-level home appears as a large work of art. Dramatic cantilevered rooms, limestone-clad facades, expansive glazing, warm cedar, and striking aluminum accents encase an artery of living spaces.

Dramatic in its horizontal expression, this private residence appears to extend into the landscape via deep overhangs and visual transparency.
