adam kalkin: kalkin house

adam kalkin created the ‘kalkin house’ as an exhibition space for the shelburne museum in vermont. when it originally opened in 2001 the home was named ‘collector’s house’ and showcasing pieces form the museum’s vast collection. today the home has a new curatorial purpose as a gallery for contemporary design. the structure is made from three shipping containers, located inside a large steel shed. the containers make up the two bedrooms with ensuite washrooms and a study. the outer shed features a double story garage door opening on both sides to open up the space to the outdoors. at the western end the shed has been extended to create a protected outdoor area which is enclosed with large curtains made from sail material. inside there is also a large kitchen area in the centre of the home with steel staircases on either side.
