Carriage House by David Adjaye located on The Upper East Side of NY, because, of course. The house belongs to the fairly tasteful collector, Adam Lindemann and his wife Amalia Dayan. Let’s be honest with ourselves, the house is a private museum, at once exhibitionistic and secret. A gallery for Lindemann’s collection occupies nearly the whole ground floor, and the house wraps itself around the art, much in the way a house with this level of collection should. A glass bridge offers a view of Maurizio Cattelan’s dead Pinocchio lying in a pit below. The living-­dining room accommodates Damien Hirst’s vast painting of hugely magnified cancer cells, sprinkled with shards of glass and razor blades. One of the highlights, besides the art, is the vertiginous stack of bedrooms; at the top of the tower, one of Andy Warhol’s “Electric Chair” silk-screens hangs across from the master bed. The collection is serious. So is the house.
