Best Art House that Houses Art

J Crist Gallery

Editors' Picks

Just after Best of Boise hit the stands last year, news filtered down that Dwaine Carver of Trout Architects won an award from the Idaho chapter of the American Institute of Architects for his design of the gallery on 17th Street. With high walls and a courtyard entrance, visitors are immediately ushered into a world within a world, even before stepping foot in the gallery.

Inside, Carver's use of plywood and concrete provide an unassuming environment that's aesthetically harmonious with the space's function as a house for art.
