Lisson Gallery in Milan, Italy by Filippo Taidelli Architetto

London’s Lisson Gallery, one of the leaders in international contemporary art, opened a new space in Milan in Via Zenale on the ground floor of historic building completely refurbished and redesigned by Studio FTA in 2008.
FTA was called to re-functionalize the rustic space originally destined for commercial and office use into a gallery and exhibition space. One enters the space from the palazzo’s interior courtyard and its rooms are developed along two floors: the ground floor hosts a window-flanked exhibition space while the basement floor offers offices and service area.
The exhibition area extends from the interior space to an outdoor stone terrace flanked by an interior garden.
Inside the minimal and elegant design of the gallery space (green-hued cement floor, white-washed walls) plays against the classical context of the building interior façade, as wells as with the layout’s essential lines and a carefully-planned balance of natural and artificial lighting.
