originally an old carriage house, the project had undergone a journey through restoration and research.
we proposed a storefront restoration based on the historical state we found on historical photographs.
The art gallery, located on a quiet street of the west village, hosts an inverted skylight, bringing light from above down into the space through a sunken box that interrupts the continuity of the galley space. The design aims at bringing together two private, yet social spaces: the terrace of the residential duplex above and a cultural program in the city at street level. Each visitor will confront a new connection between 2 programs generally secluded one from the other in the city.
Between old and new, our project offers a balance between historical significance and a transformation challenging the limit between public and private that sets the building for a flexible future. at New York, New York
