Upstate New York is indeed a place of wonder where a side road may open up into a farm, a hill, and these days, an ultra-modern art space. Magazzino strives for the latter: a beautiful, barebones building with sharp lines and a curious collection of contemporary Italian artists on view, just off U.S. 9 highway not far from Cold Spring, NY.

 

The building is designed by Spanish architect Miguel Quismondo

There’re many delightful details in the construction of the building, including the world’s most minimal electric outlet

 

Except for the logo, Magazzino’s style and signage is infused with Helvetica typeface
