sunken garden: This art gallery, located on a quiet street of the west village, hosts an inverted skylight, bringing light from above down into the space through a sunken box that interrupt the continuity of the gallery space. The design aims at bringing together two private, yet social spaces: The terrace of the residential duplex above and a cultural program in the city at street level. Each visitor will confront a new connection between 2 programs generally secluded one from the other in the City.
Between old and new, our project offers a balance between historical significance and a transformation challenging the limit between public and private that sets the building for a flexible future.
