جایی که هنر و معماری به هم می رسند: تغییر مدل یک خانه در کالیفرنیا

Sculptor Cliff Garten is known
for his grand public pieces. His wife, Molly Reid, is a residential architect.
The couple's first collaboration: an overhaul of a dilapidated house and garage
on a 11,000-square-foot lot in Los Angeles, which they bought for $800,000 in
2002.

The resulting compound
reflects elements of both of them. Reid, 49, said she tends to think more about
alignment and measurements. Garten, 59, said he understands a space by
"feeling" its energy and finding a way to make a place and a
sculpture fit together.

Reid
drew the plans, keeping the footprint of the 3,000-square-foot house but
raising the ceilings from 7 feet to 9 feet in the kitchen and living room,
installing skylights and opening up the living room to the yard with large
glass walls that push open. The two-car garage, which had been converted into a
guest house, was torn down and replaced by a 1,500-square-foot corrugated metal
studio with 20-foot ceilings. (Bing:
How do you paint rooms with high ceilings?)
