NYC: The Collector's Loft

Designed by UNStudio, the interior of the Collector's Loft in Manhattan bridges the gap of a residential living space and an art gallery... 
I don't know about you, but I'm willing to guess the people that live here do not have children. Check out all the white walls and expensive artwork everywhere... I'll give my kid 2 minutes to cause some serious damage in there...
The existing loft space was characterized by challenging proportions: the space is long and wide, but also rather low. gently flowing curved walls were introduced to virtually divide the main space into proportionally balanced spaces. This created zones of comfortable proportions for domestic use, while simultaneously generating a large amount of wall space for the display of art. The former windows in the south wall have been replaced by full floor to ceiling glass panes that frame and extend compelling views, over a full glass balcony, toward downtown manhattan.
