Caruso St John takes on fresh Gagosian art gallery in Mayfair
Caruso St John Architects is advising the Gagosian Gallery on plans for a new contemporary art venue in Mayfair, London
The high-profile studio – which has completed six bases for the international chain so far – will advise on the interior fit our of a new showroom at 20 Grosvenor Hill.
The contemporary art seller acquired a 15-year lease for the building from landlord Grosvenor last week.
Grosvenor has retained Tate Hindle to redevelop the building which is currently used by Savills while Caruso St John has been retained by the gallery itself. Jackson Coles is project manager and quantity surveyor for Gagosian.
A spokesperson for the landowner said: ‘Gagosian has acquired the lease for 20 Grosvenor Hill on a 15-year lease and the building will be developed by Grosvenor on behalf of Gagosian.’
Savills will vacate the building later this year under plans to relocate and consolidate its West End teams in a BFLS-designed office building on nearby Margaret Street.
Caruso St John completed its latest art galleries for Gagosian in Paris (pictured) three years ago.
