Chelsea Art Gallery

Located in the Chelsea neighborhood, right under the High Line, this new art gallery is set to open in April 2013.
The building has two floors, street level and cellar level. The street level is divided in three parts: access hall and offices in the façade, a 1,500sqf main gallery space in the center and two private viewing rooms plus library at the back. The cellar level contains work area and storage space. Along with the mechanical engineers team from Buro Happol, we rigorously worked to fit all the mechanical systems into the ceiling, above the offices and entrance hall. Thanks to that, we got a 15’-7” height for the main gallery space. The exhibition spaces receive natural daylight through two rows of skylights located next to the party wall and falling outside the vertical projection of the High Line.
