Rural Art Gallery
Inspired by historic Quaker Meeting House architecture, the Dedee Shattuck Gallery in Westport, MA, sits quietly in the rural landscape. The building design reflects the simplicity and timeless quality of the past while integrating design features, materials, and systems to reach today’s sustainable goals. A contemporary interior design provides an ideal canvas to display art exhibitions. To maximize the daylight in the exhibition space, the building was designed with soaring columns of glass delineating its four corners. Collaborating with the owner, an artist herself, the project fulfilled her long held dream of creating a gallery.
