Location: Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India

Project Work Status: Completed Projects

Area: 10,000 Sqft.

Client: Vijay Aggarwal

An art space, as huge as 10,000 square feet spread in three storeys, has made a conscious attempt to showcase itself, more as an art archive than a museum or gallery that it could be for the sheer virtue of unique and ancient collection it has.

Owned by art devotee Vijay Aggarwal, this art building is divided into three sections: gallery, office and storage, defined as artefacts/paintings, library, and restoration.

The ground floor or the gallery area is further divided into painting sections and sculpture court in the garden area, which also serves as the coffee zone. It is designed in a way that visitors can sip coffee while having a look at all the artefacts and paintings, either through the life-size glass, double-glazed windows, or barrier-less spaces, depending upon the occasion.

Swaraj, which has drawn its name from the owner's mother, houses a unique combination of art collections from 1900 to 1980, from almost all schools India possibly has Bengal School, Lucknow School, and Bombay School . Its library is full of books on art, rare, scholastic and popular. Its restoration and storage section has experts visiting it.
