Boy does it #sparkjoy@archdigest
Some parts are gently faded and others unmistakably shabby. What were once the exquisitely painted moldings designed in the 1770s by the great Scottish architects Robert and James Adam for the drawing room ceiling of a house on Mansfield Street in the Marylebone area of central London now look distinctly played down. So they are. The house’s owner, the Swiss philanthropist and art patron Maja Hoffmann, was so taken by the elegantly dilapidated moldings that she decided to conserve them thoughtfully. “They had such a special quality and were too beautiful to be repainted,” says Hoffmann. “So we left them raw and unfinished.” The Adam brothers designed some of the grandest homes in late-18th century Britain, where their elegant interpretation of neoclassicism—dubbed the “Adam style”—was synonymous with sophistication. The surviving Adam houses are among London’s most sought-after properties. Hoffmann owns two, having bought the first in 2006 and then its next-door neighbor two years later. Working with the Iranian-born #AD100 architect and interior designer @indiamahdavi, Hoffmann, an heiress to the Hoffmann–La Roche pharmaceutical fortune, transformed the first house into a family home for herself, her partner, the film producer Stanley F. Buchthal, and their two children. The second house was turned into her work space and a place where she hosts dinners for the @tate, @serpentineuk Galleries, and other art institutions she supports in a vast drawing room with a gilded-copper ceiling in which the artist Rudolf Stingel has installed a spectacular series of carpets.
