Dangrove is a purpose built ‘state of the art’ storage facility which houses a private collection of contemporary Chinese art.
The brief for DANGROVE required art storage to be integrated with curatorial requirements, informal exhibition and performance spaces, research facilities, workshops and other related functions. It also required construction to be designed for a minimum 100 year life, deliver low net energy use and have a low carbon footprint.
With approximately 10,000 square metres of internal space, the architecture is formed from a hierarchy of experiences created by the arrangement of special spaces, their connection and use of light. A journey through the building is choreographed to enhance viewing experiences and understanding of the collection.
