508 and 510 West 25th Street
New York, NY
10,000sf gallery and offices
Pace purchased property (508 west 25th Street) located under the High Line and adjacent to their current gallery (formerly the Bortolami Gallery renovated by HS2 in 2007) in order to build a new gallery building to be connected with the current space.
Constrained by the High Line structure above, we created a structural solution comprised of very shallow steel members to maximize the ceiling height. The addition of skylights running the length of the east and west party walls allow natural light to flood into the galleries despite the hovering presence of the High Line above.
A ten foot by ten foot opening connects the gallery buildings and allows for a flexible exhibition program.
