Blue Ivy House by mcmahon and nerlich, is a deep response to the design personality of the clients. Eschewing a conservative response for the semi-retired clients, Blue Ivy reflects their deep appreciation for art and literature and immediately responds to the artistic provocations of the material palette and a response to the redefined spatial settings created in the floor plan.
The design accommodates a significant book collection and some quite remarkable artworks. Materials, furniture and coverings were chosen to respond to both the clients brief and references from literature and art. (Published with Bowerbird)
