It is not very often that you come across a home that has been exclusively designed to hold art work of a specific artist and to elevate it through its overall design. Showcasing the amazing artwork created by artist Jun Kaneko and combining it with the specific style of the homeowner and their wish to have an open, modern lifestyle, the Omaha Art House designed by Olson Kundig is truly one of a kind in every sense of the word! It is gorgeous art installations that you find here at every turn with these special pieces adding color contrast and focal points to every room that they adorn. If you love sculptural art pieces and curated two-dimensional works, then this is a home you are bound to adore.
The house itself has an open ambiance with glass doors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows bringing the outdoors inside. Each room flows into the next with the dining area and the livings pace being intertwined with similar style and finishes. A gallery-inspired color palette and sweeping hallways make the house even more fitting for smart display of rare art pieces. Gorgeous contemporary lighting fixtures and smart recessed lighting illuminate the dining area; a space that feels perfect for a great Thanksgiving celebration. [Photography: Benjamin Benschneider]
The main floor continues to the other side of the home with a kitchen, den and master suite. There are three additional guest bedrooms upstairs. A revamped front façade and a custom bronze and steel front door creates an intriguing entry to the home, beginning a series of contemplative moments that continue throughout the house.
