The project comprises the reconfiguration, renovation and extension with a new façade of a contemporary art gallery for Luis Campaña located on the ground floor of a Wilhelminian style residential block within the ‘newspaper district’ in central Berlin. Several interventions are optimising the layout of the gallery and provide additional exhibition, office and storage spaces. The street façade is redesigned with black ceramic tiling and large framed openings to allow deep views into the gallery, creating a representative entrance to the gallery´s new premises. The reflective surface stimulates the interaction between the exhibits inside and the public space outside. The new plan extends the gallery to a generous and varied sequence of four gallery spaces from the street up to a large industrial space with cast-iron columns and vaulted ceiling at the rear forming a spatial enfilade of differently proportioned long, tall and wide exhibition spaces.
