"I don't believe people choose buildings, I believe buildings choose people," said Hunt Slonem of his latest project, a complete redesign of the Colonel Louis Watres Armory in Scranton, Pennsylvania. "I just fell in love with it."
The acclaimed artist transformed the historic armory, which was built in 1900 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, into an artistic design mecca. The space is truly a work of art: from the vibrant, multicolored interiors to the collection of rare items decorated throughout, Slonem's transformative touch has brought a new life to the 102,000-square-foot space.
The project is the subject of a book recently published by Assouline, featuring Slonem's work with text by Sara Ruffin Costello. The book takes readers through the Armory room by room, highlighting Slonem's eclectic work and sense of wonder. Take a peek inside the stunning book and see Slonem's project up close here.
