The client wished to transform his 1,500 square foot downtown Memphis condo into an exhibition space to house part of his extensive art collection.
The primary element of the condo is a charcoal stained oak veneer monolith of shelving, used to divide the space, while also displaying the smaller artifacts within the art collection.
The small space features two balconies. The direction of the monolith, a linear light fixture in the living space extends the view, and minimal glass balcony doors help celebrate the exceptional views of Beale Street to the East and the Mississippi River to the West. Two smaller windows are thoughtfully framed, showcasing additional views of Memphis.
