Location: New Delhi, Delhi, India
Project Work Status: Completed Projects
Area: 950 Sq Ft
Client: Ashish Anand - Delhi Art Gallery
Project Completed: 2009
The Delhi Art Gallery is an endeavour to create a simplistic space to retail the best of contemporary art in India, while positioning itself in the new Indian Contemporary Art Retail Paradigm. The architecture aims to generate a new genre of art retail; a calm and introspective retail store conducive to the appreciation of art in a gallery-like environment for the art aficionado looking to invest money in these prized possessions. A pre-requisite to art retail is the maximization of wall space, which is designed for maximum exposure of a quantum of art works. Additionally, the store was intended to have the ability to transform itself for a variety of art events; to house the complete bandwidth of art works; from high-end solo shows of a few works to huge group shows with segregated and mobile spaces. Another challenge was to accommodate a library, an area for public dissemination of art works, storage, display and offices all within an area of 900 sq ft.
