Modernist cube shaped construction paying tribute identifiable artistic references

Series 2 Episode 8: Yellingbo Artist's House

Art teacher and sculptor Laurie Smith and his wife Renee Hoareau are both zealous art lovers. Their vision is to create a sort of domestic gallery that will inspire both inside and out with a modernist cube shaped construction of steel, stone and glass that celebrates and pays tribute to some identifiable artistic references. This will be a place to live, work, create and display their extensive art collection in equal measure. Inspiration comes from many sources – for example the 25 metre long stone facade with its tricky curved window is reminiscent of a well known state gallery.
