Metaform, the Luxembourg City based architecture firm, designed a contemporary 4,000 square foot apartment building in Luxembourg, with a unique flare. With a black and graffiti, monolithic structure, the project’s sculptural architecture stands out amongst the other homes in the neighborhood. “Within the framework of our project, architecture and art are found side by side, are entangled, extend and complete each other in order to create a common language, a synergy which creates an intriguing, vivid and dynamic, yet at the same time intimate, welcoming and friendly ensemble. The reflection on the relation between art and architecture is part of the concept created with the involvement of the artist SUMO. Sumo voluntarily covered the space from the ground to the ceiling with his artwork in such a way that his art, which one can consider being “post-graffiti”, is subtly integrated in the built space“. The residence has a total of three floors. The first level hosts a two-bedroom apartment, the second accommodates two studios, while the third was dedicated duplex apartment.
