Kasmin Gallery

Paul Kasmin has opened his fourth gallery in Chelsea – a
new flagship space located along the High Line in the heart
of New York’s gallery district. In designing this new space,
studioMDA has created a purpose-built gallery that acts as
a Kunsthalle for displaying and viewing art with maximum
spatial flexibility and daylight inside. On the one-story
building’s roof is a new green scape that functions as a
sculpture garden to be enjoyed by the city.

The main exhibition area, designed for the display of largescale
artworks, is a column-free, 3,000 sq.ft. space with
22-foot-high walls and a polished concrete floor. The ceiling
in this main space is a pattern of 28 trapezoidal board-formed
concrete coffers, each of which houses a large skylight that
provides diffused natural daylight into the art space. The
ceiling grid of the super waffle structure establishes the
rhythm of the skylights, but also allows maximum flexibility
to subdivide the space in a variety of ways. In addition to
the expansive exhibition space, the new gallery also houses
private viewing rooms and offices.
