Thank you! @archdigest #repost “Everything can become a work of art,” says @roynachum, the Israeli-born conceptual artist, who is perhaps best known for creating the cover art for @badgalriri’s 2015 album “Anti.” So it was when it came to the 3,000-square-foot home he shares with his wife, Maia, and their son in downtown New York City, a 19th-century building in trendy NoLIta that hadn’t been touched since the 1970s, and a studio down the street. “It was exactly what we had been searching for,” says Maia of the raw space, which once served as a multistory stable and commercial factory before it became lofts. “It was rough and undeveloped, but we immediately saw its potential—high ceilings and big windows with light coming in from both sides. Roy sought out a blank canvas.” No strangers to large-scale architectural projects—the couple oversees the development of commercial properties like the L.A. nightclub @1oakla and Southern Hospitality, @justintimberlake’s restaurant in New York, through their multidisciplinary design firm the @mercerproject—they embarked on a gut renovation of the building, demolishing walls and reconstructing rooms that are “seamlessly connected, creating a feeling of infinite movement,” Maia says. Once the new layout was established, the Nachums juxtaposed light and dark, rough-hewn and sleek elements for the kind of visceral textural contrast often found in Roy’s work. “We wanted people to experience the materials and their application,” Roy says. “You see it on the walls in how the cement is applied, in the 16-inch–wide wood floor planks, and in the glass-and-steel arched doors with linen curtains.” A sunny space off the living room displays Nachum's Fire Chair, made in collaboration with the couple’s multidisciplinary design firm, as well as his Camp Fire Table and oil-on-canvas artwork entitled “King.” Pablo Picasso’s “Femme aux Cheveux Flous” sits on the opposite wall.

Everything you see is in the past. The future is not what it used to be. Today is the subject.
