Architect Javier Robles helps renovate an East Hampton house for a pair of art collectors. A photography portfolio by David Benjamin Sherry for ELLE Decor that Inspiration and Ideas is about to take over and show everything inside of this home design featuring the best contemporary art.
After the purchase of this incredible luxury home in 2004, that overlooks an incredible bay, in 2016, a couple was ready to make this high-end fishermen’s cottage into the house of their dreams and that is when the entire renovation started.
They had a clear idea of what the house would look like and of the contemporary art they wanted inside of this amazing abode with a very imposing, but at the same time subtle, modern design. They had a clear idea of what the home should look like, and they hired the Peruvian architect Javier Robles to bring their vision to reality.
“Is it possible to have a swimming pool indoors?”
Of course, there had to be enough space to display a significant portion of their contemporary art collection, including works by Lucy Dodd, Egan Frantz, and Richard Aldrich. In love with these interior design trends?
In designing the space, they wanted to highlight the furniture and lighting they had curated over the years, hence the greatness of their modern art – everything was thought of. With their architect, they discussed every detail they had been mulling, from how to incorporate natural light in the house to ceiling heights and interior illumination.
