The Sapphire Gallery is a residential addition designed to display a private collection of contemporary art while also providing for a home office with views to the surrounding hills. The owners’ collection includes work by the artists Gregory Crewdson, Uta Barth, Tomoroy Dodge and the video artist Jennifer Steinkamp, and they wanted a new building that would be more than just a container for their art collection. The new gallery extension is multivalent, with different spaces for presenting artworks, while also opening to hillside views, incorporating a home office, and creating a compelling new focal point for the approach and entry to the property.
