Art Collector's Pad is an 'Image of Formality and Whimsy'

The Berlin home of an avid contemporary art collector is far from a gallery space. Take, for example, the walls. The architect, Gisbert Pöppler, brought a "spicy tomato soup" color into the kitchen and splashed aqua into the library, "constellations of color" meant to "enhance rather than detract from the artwork on display, inspiring new readings of the pieces featured," or so the architect writes. Then of course there's the custom concrete fireplace, the reading nook, the (contented sigh) midcentury-inspired office, and the en suite bath, swathed in black marble as "a dualistic image of formality and whimsy."
