Sundaram Tagore Gallery in New York City by Katz Architecture

November 15th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Katz Architecture

The Gallery:

The Sundaram Tagore Gallery is devoted to the exchange of ideas between Western and non-­‐Western cultures. In keeping with its mission, the Gallery sought to bridge dualities when they moved into the ground floor of a manufacturing building in West Chelsea. The new space, which last served as a taxi garage, had to be completely overhauled to serve as a platform for cross-­‐cultural discussion through visual art, poetry, literature, performance art, film and music.

  • Architect: Katz Architecture
  • Name of Project: Sundaram Tagore Gallery
  • Location: New York City, USA

  • Project Scope: Interior Renovation
  • Contributing Professionals:

The Design:

The backdrop for this discussion was a dialogue of contrasts -­‐ existing and pre-­‐existing, industrial and natural, textured and smooth, old and new. The design attempted to reveal the history of the space, to bridge past and present and create an environment within which artwork can hover.

Project Highlights:

  • Located in a run down 19th century factory building, the space was an abandoned former taxi garage.
  • The space had heavy timber framing, which Katz highlighted by revealing the structure, leaving old floor joists and utilities open to public view.
  • Katz refinished the floor in polished concrete.
