Adjaye Associates has completed the refurbishment of the new London home for the Marian Goodman Gallery.
The contemporary art centre is based in a grade II-listed former Victorian warehouse off Soho’s Golden Square.
The building’s aged facade has been restored to its original bright sandstone-coloured brick, while refurbished windows and skylights illuminate the building’s cast-iron columns, curving staircase, and vaulted ceiling.
The practice said: ‘The project is about the dialogue between art and its context as well as between the historic building and contemporary architecture.
‘It offers a narrative about London as an art-world capital and provides a platform for the introduction of the gallery’s artists into this arena.’
The gallery’s inaugural show is an exhibition of recent work by Gerhard Richter.
Goodman also has galleries in New York and Paris.
