Working in collaboration with architect Chris Stead of Paris, BPR designed a gallery, cafe and office for the Magnum Photography agency.
Three architectural moves are key in turning this former hotel ballroom into an integrated set of spaces. A portion of the ground floor concrete slab is cut away, a bridge spanned across it, and a cafe ‘trailer’ inserted into the front facade. The front of the trailer pushes through to the street, defining the entrance and helping to project the identity of the gallery.
