Spaces: Steven Ehrlich Architects: Boxenbaum Residence

. Saturday, November 28, 2009

The home of Chuck and Kharlene Boxenbaum by Steven Ehrlich Architects.

"Situated on a sloping corner lot across from an elementary school, the
Boxenbaum House orients itself away from two perimeter streets towards rear and side outdoor spaces and gardens for privacy and serenity. The home's principle function, other than the primary residence of a couple with grown children, is to create a gallery for the work of noted artist Kharlene Boxenbaum. To do this, the design maximizes large wall expanses bathed in ambient light an ideal environment for showcasing art.

The home is furnished with a nice collection of iconic modern design: Hans Wegner Wishbone dining chairs; a pair of Eames lounge chairs, and a classic arrangement of Florence Knoll marble tables; Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona chairs, coffee table, and daybed; with a Frank Gehry Wigglestool as a sculptural element.
