Client: Edwina Corlette Gallery
Completion: May 2008
A small, single shopfront volume is converted into a memorable
collection of three discrete rooms by doing nothing more than removing all existing finishes and positioning a small number of new plaster walls. The outcome is a generous, high-ceilinged main gallery which spills into a smaller display area and proprietor's workspace, with both of these providing access via breaks in enclosing walls to a largely separated and very intimate gallery. Floors and ceilings are pared back to the original grey concrete, and the smallest gallery space is animated by the copper pipework left exposed overhead.
