In 1975 Sir Miles Warren designed a gallery that would adjoin his apartment and architectural offices at 65 Cambridge Terrace. Images from the time he lived there express a living space that fuses architecture, art and home; a shag pile rug, Danish chairs and a salon style wall of paintings. It looks like a place you’d want to be.

For Living Room, ten artists respond to Warren’s remarkable architecture and the use for which it was designed.

Drawing on our personal and cultural associations with the objects and architecture of daily life, the exhibition features work that responds to the notion of being lived with, considering how we design and adorn domestic spaces as an act of self-expression.

Featuring new and recent work from Gerard Dombroski, Emma Fitts, Cat Fooks, Jack Hadley, Julia Holderness, Cheryl Lucas, Steven Junil Park, Nichola Shanley, Lisa Walker and Wayne Youle. Living Room exists somewhere between show-home, lounge room and design-fair-display.

Living Room is a collaboration between Objectspace and The National, and is curated by Kim Paton and Caroline Billing.
