A new gallery in Brooklyn will incorporate areas for the production, display and storage of contemporary art 

New York architecture studio SO-IL have unveiled a design for a new Brooklyn art gallery in New York called Artes Amant. The 14,250-square-foot (1,320 square metre) building will house areas for the production, display and storage of contemporary art. The facility is being constructed in an industrial area dotted with storage facilities and trucking companies.

Commenting on the building SO-IL said: “This arts’ building is an exploration in soft form, where a cluster of shells acts to diffuse an exterior presence and shape the building’s interior. The self-supporting geometry of these shells exists in tension with programming, light, and circulation. The constant calibration of these constraints inform the contours of the building. 

“Apertures in the shells capture and carry natural light into a nearly edgeless interior, challenging the perception of a defined space. Across the building’s exterior, edges and seams slip in and out of appearance. Throughout the building’s suppleness and muted palette play with ambiguity and legibility; neither monumental nor prosaic, instead it entices.”

SO-IL co-founder Florian Idenburg said the building is designed from the inside out. "The aim is to create a collection of well-defined spaces where artists can work and art can be enjoyed and cared for."

Completion is scheduled for 2017.
