In the Philadelphia suburb of Gladwyne, Pa., a private art collection is housed in an atypical building. It's not just the building's unusual shape and sharp angles or its bright red color that make it so conspicuous—one of the building's most eye-catching features is its gleaming standing-seam copper roof.

In 2008, the private collection's owner commissioned Point B Design Ltd., Philadelphia, to design the building, known as D.gallery. According to Point B Design, the owner's primary goal was to house the art collection in a dynamic environment that responds to changes in and creates temporal associations between the interior content and exterior environment.

"The building is intended to be a part of the art collection," says Will Gooding, an owner of GSM Roofing, Ephrata, Pa.
