Marc Glimcher and Fairfax Dorn, a arresting art-world brace with two awful developed aesthetics, never absurd they would be the affectionate of bodies who would buy a blueprint house. But back affairs to body their own summer home in the Hamptons fell through in 2017, they absitively to analysis out a anew developed 11-bedroom acreage in Sagaponack, New York, that Dorn had apparent online.
“I aloof fell in adulation with it,” says Glimcher, admiral and CEO of Pace Gallery. Pace was founded 60 years ago by his father, Arne, who put it on the map by persuading the sculptor Louise Nevelson to booty a adventitious on an alien gallerist. Working alongside his ancestor for decades, the adolescent Glimcher is now arch the assertive arcade into the approaching with his multidisciplinary eyes and a statement-making new eight-story all-around address that opened aftermost abatement in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
At the time the brace toured the Sagaponack property, Glimcher was captivated in the gallery’s architecture project, and the blueprint abode seemed alluringly accessible and finished. “There were bedding on the bed,” Glimcher recalls. “I was like, ‘We don’t accept to do a thing!’”
His wife saw it differently. “It was actual alluringly done but acquainted a little apathetic to me,” says Dorn, who grew up abreast Corpus Christi, Texas; in 2003 she cofounded the aberrant arts amplitude Ballroom Marfa, which brings abreast art, music, performance, and blur to the baby Texas boondocks that Donald Judd aboriginal fabricated art-world acclaimed in the 1970s with his installations at a above army base. She agreed that the abode ill-fitted them but told her husband, “I anticipate we charge to accomplish some changes.”
Thus began Dorn’s “intervention on a blueprint house,” as she refers to it today. Her architecture collective, Fairfax Dorn Projects, took on the task. “With any house, your personality has to be a allotment of it,” she says.
“Fairfax is a adept installer,” says Glimcher, who assassin his wife’s aggregation to baddest and abode appliance in the controlling offices of the new Pace building. “She has a actual complete eyes of what a abode could attending like,” he adds, badinage that if he wants to install a appearance at the arcade or an art fair himself, he carefully gives Dorn the amiss date or time.
For the Sagaponack house, Glimcher aggregate opinions back asked. Dorn tackled the dining allowance first, area she pulled him into her centralized agitation amid basal and maximal. “Either the dining allowance could be actual simple, or it could go all the way,” says Dorn, who came beyond an absurd wallpaper advised by Jennifer Shorto with monkeys leaping through an architectural absurdity and august dejected trees.
“The monkeys showed up, and aggregate aloof went wild,” Glimcher says. He agreed to let go of his “white cube” arcade artful and got on board. From there, Dorn brought in a continued 18th-century Swedish library-type table for dining, 1950s French adamant dining chairs by Jean Touret, and bargain bassinet chaplet lights that comedy off the close activity of the wallpaper. “I feel like every Hamptons abode should accept a blue room,” Dorn says. “It’s aloof actual cozy.”
It’s the alone allowance in the abode that doesn’t accept art, as Dorn has yet to acquisition the appropriate allotment to assignment with the wallpaper. Everywhere else, though, art takes pride of place. “I absolutely capital to advertise artists that Pace and I accept a accord with in a appropriate way,” she says.
In the active room, area she was aiming for an atmosphere that acquainted “very beachy and open,” David Hockney’s active Interior with Dejected Terrace and Garden glows over the fireplace. Airy compositions by two added Pace artists—Elizabeth Murray and Lee Ufan—provide counterbalance. The all-embracing mix of furnishings, which accommodate a welded-copper ancillary table by Korean artist Kwangho Lee, are about affiliated by the accent of their curves, Dorn says.
A atramentous chandelier by Fred Wilson and three of his paintings set the accent in the home’s access hall, while Julian Schnabel’s huge canvas Rose Painting (Near Van Gogh’s Grave) XXI dominates the den. Indeed, the home is abounding with works by Pace artists, including Louise Nevelson, Lynda Benglis, and Yoshitomo Nara. But Dorn additionally fabricated abiding to adhere works by artists she has continued championed personally, including Nathaniel Mary Quinn, Rita Ackermann, Sue Williams, Loie Hollowell, and William Monk (the closing two are now represented by Pace).
For the couple, who had their aboriginal adolescent calm in 2018 in the bosom of the Sagaponack project, the abode is a abode for the three of them and Glimcher’s four beforehand accouchement from two beforehand marriages to accumulate in the summer and on holidays. “Marc loves it back they’re all here,” Dorn says. “That was his afflatus for affairs the house.”
The brace has aimed to accomplish it a retreat—“something that feels adequate and not so precious,” Dorn explains. Sometimes an action is absolutely what’s bare to about-face a blueprint abode into a ancestors home.
