Editorial Reviews


"A new book David Adjaye: A House for an Art Collector, published by Rizzoli, documents every room wall and basement nook of the Lindemann Dayanhouse revealing both garish taste and a formal inventiveness that hasn't been seen in a private New York residence since the days of Paul Rudolph." ~New York Magazine

“David Adjaye is the Michael Maltzan of British architecture, fusing the cerebral and the tactile, collaborating with artists and collectors, and creating buildings at both ends of the price spectrum. The National Museum of African Art in Washington DC will make him a household name when it’s completed, four years from now.” ~Form

“It is rare to have an entire book devoted to one single-family residence. However, this is a special case, a New York carriage house built in 1898 and expanded over a period of five years… the house is eccentric as hell.” ~Interior Design
“The 128-page House for an Art Collector opens with construction shots, elevation diagrams and blueprint-like plans: not your ordinary coffee table book. it gradually guides readers through the process of transforming the classic Upper East Side carriage house into an innovative home replete with ideal spaces to showcase a rotating art collection alongside room for an expanding family.” ~New York Observer
