West Village Landmark: This art gallery, located on a quiet street in the West Village, hosts an inverted skylight that we call the "Sunken Garden," bringing light from above down into space through a sunken box that interrupts 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 two programs generally secluded from one another 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.
