. Transformation of a light industrial building into a gallery and event space for the renown Showroom Gallery in collaboration with Jesko Fezer +Ifau.
The conversion was realised on a very tight budget and time frame. While maintaing the character of the building the new gallery is versatile and can accommodate very different kinds of exhibitions and other programmes running in the space; ranging from for example video installations to public discussions and events. The building was stripped to its bare essentials and a layer of a simple, easily adaptable timber grid structure was erected on the Ground Floor. Through the insertion of a glazed industrial scale pivoting gate the boundary to the gallery can be be completely opened up to the street when appropriate.
