Text description provided by the architects. This is a 3000 square foot, free standing new building for renowned New York art dealer Matthew Marks.
The building was conceived as a monolithic, windowless, 70 x 40 x 32 foot white stucco box.
Its unyielding massing is intended to provide a distinct transition from the highly trafficked commercial strip along Santa Monica Boulevard to the residential district to its south, an area characterized by a series of mid-century two to five story stucco apartment buildings.
It features a facade embellished with an Ellsworth Kelly sculpture and a 12x4x4 foot opening.
