In this project we were tasked with designing a small art gallery for a site on King St in Newtown (where the IGA is located). We had a number of requirements apart from the gallery space, including an office where the owner of the gallery could sell their wares, a café, a food preparation area and a function space. In the case of this art gallery I designed not a generic space but a space around specific artworks from artists Chuck Close and Richard Serra. A key focus in this project was the sculpting of light as it entered the spaces - as the building was packed in on both sides I let the light flood in through the sunroof, where I diffused the light through layers of louvres and translucent glass. The light that passed through would hit the solid concrete walls and bleed down, giving a gentle gradient. I only used one Richard Serra piece due to it's size and used it as part of the circulation of the space.
