Studio Collins Weir
Kitchen, Central Atrium, Dining Room and Terrace
Design Space #2
The past year has reinforced the idea of home as a personal space, a safe place, a sanctuary. This has also been a time of retreat from family, friends and our general community. Where once we welcomed visitors into our homes, we have spent a year creating necessary walls to the outside world. As we emerge from this seclusion and shed our fortress mentality we look forward to once again, welcoming our community into our homes.
We strengthened the axial relationship of the three spaces by centering the breakfast and dining tables on the kitchen island. This centerpiece is rendered in Verde Antigua marble complementing the landscape and the sky. The breakfast table sits beneath a paper lantern from Ozone and is surrounded by vintage chairs in lambswool by Pierre Guariche. Bleached white oak and caned millwork doors allow glimpses into the treasures of everyday life.
The dining room is a filter to views East over a green terrace complimented with sculptural chairs by Vladimir Kagan. Set under the Les Cordes chandelier, the table, designed by Studio Collins Weir is rendered in white oak with a high polished steel base whose reflective qualities expand the space and natural light. The Marta Sala dining chairs are upholstered in blue, hope and optimism to the future.
Tension lies between the minimal architecture and the vibrant colors and forms of the fine art including works by Jutta Haeckel, Rita Ackermann, Devina Semo and Judith Eisler. Each of these women explores materiality and process, capturing narratives, memories and movement within the frame of their canvas.
