After 30 years in a turn-of-the-century Porfirian villa, the contemporary art gallery OMR decided to move to a new location. The design strategy was to preserve the existing brutalist building as much as possible, adjusting some interior details so as to bring out the character of the building and transform it into a generous exhibition space. A vertical one story extension accommodates all back-of-house functions. The result is a sober project that amplifies the character of the original building whilst preparing it for a new cultural life without resorting to the international conventions of the sterile white cube.

This is the first exhibition in Casa Cor, Brasília.
The boutique studio 1:1 arquitetura:design created a 120 square meters of loft, aimed for people who loves the minimalist life style, surrounded by art and any reference of their own memories: “we created a space that works perfectly for us, a sample of the must important elements in our home, almost living inside an Art Gallery.

12 degrees was designed as an urban infill project, fitting into the context of a mixed use residential area where the city block has buildings that include both the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Ontario College of Art and Design.
Given the artistic nature of the city block, the design became a playful exercise in massing and an anchor to the south-west corner of the block. The design can be read as analogous to the stacking of toy blocks, with one of the blocks skewed at 12 degrees from the others.

Of the need for an exhibition space came the “MATO – Art Gallery”, next to Paulo Neves sculptor’s atelier.
Looking for inspiration in their own work of the sculptor, the organic design mirrors the trace of Paulo Neves. Whole body develops without straight surfaces. As if a strange animal has born on site, mixed with the surrounding vegetation.

The living and business house was built in 1893 and accommodates six 3.5-room apartments, an art gallery in the ground floor and a motorcycle workshop in the basement.
The dwelling levels are fully refurbished. The formerly North and street orientated living-/dining room is now facing the quiet south. The floor plan, which was divided into small sections with entrée, bathroom and kitchen, is now dissolved. A new infrastructure box with bathroom and kitchen is added and is spliting the loft like room in entrance, living and dining area.

This is a small art gallery in large camphor trees of a new park in Fukuoka. The structure of this gallery is a suspension system like a hammock in a forest. It’s floor and roof are both steel- concrete composite slabs hanged from the column walls between trees, which is an extension of its piles from the ground. The curved surface of the roof is a catenary shape following to a force of gravity. The suspended slab works to lead people from the park into this gallery, and suspended roof works to make shades on the inside of the gallery. People will appreciate arts of the gallery with comfort like in a hammock in the forest.

“We enter a space otherwise empty time, but full of memories, stories and livings of other times. Today remains, collects memories, modifies the look, brings together pieces and reassembles If a new life where the past, present and future go hand in hand . A bit like the Seventh Art.
