Ohlhausen DuBois Architects: Klein Residence Architecture
Ohlhausen DuBois Architects have completed a contemporary glass house, Klein Residence. Located in Sante Fe, New Mexico.
Creating an ideal setting for living with a contemporary art collection, this house is acclaimed as “among the finest American homes built for art”. The house was designed around specific works of art including pieces by Ellsworth Kelly, Kiki Smith, Richard Serra and Donald Judd. A counterpoint to the panoramic views and the dramatic New Mexico skies, a James Turrell Skyspace embedded in the center of the house offers a contemplative experience of light and space.
Located on a rugged hillside site in the desert, the design resonates with the sublime, timeless quality of region. Paula Hayes designed the landscape around the house, blurring the distinction between art and nature, and the property includes site specific pieces by Olafur Eliasson and Andy Goldsworthy.
