Moises Esquenazi Puts a Modern Spin on an American-Style Barn
It’s difficult to attach a specific professional label to Moises Esquenazi, www.leoob.com. Bogota-born and U.S.-trained, Esquenazi is an architectural, interior and furniture designer and a photographer. A man of many hats, his interest in art and design was fostered by his grandmother, an artist and patron of contemporary Columbian artists, as well as by his parents, both art aficionados. His childhood home was designed by a protégé of Le Corbusier and was filled with paintings by Botero, Obregon and Grau.
In addition to running his interior design and architecture firm Moises Esquenazi & Associates, he is a photographer who has exhibited at The Makor Center in New York City in 2007 and gallery in Sag Harbor, NY in 2010. Work from his “Natural Boundaries” series hangs on the walls of this Sag Harbor home which he shares with his partner the real estate developer Bryan Graybill. The architecture is based on the vernacular forms of the rural Northeast. The interiors are modern and playful.
