This design for a renowned Italian Art Gallery in Hong Kong took a space inside the historic Pedder Building and transformed it through a series of simple moves. Original feature elements are exposed, and minimal palette seeks to distinguish features by shadow and finish rather than colour, focussing on the art on display. A bespoke door at the entrance is constructed from folded steel and glass, with different configurations designed to respond to requirements during events, installation and general opening.Bespoke furniture seeks to enhance the ancillary spaces, with storage concealed behind a horizontal shutter within the reception space.
