Purpose built art gallery in London’s West End that contains three floors of exhibition space for the display of post-1900 work

The gallery replaces two buildings on Bond Street and provides exhibition space across the ground, first and second floors. Ancillary facilities include two private viewing galleries, a research library and boardroom space.

The Portland stone facade has a single-storey bronze framed shop front, two principal floors and a plainer attic storey. It features three bas-reliefs depicting scenes from Homer’s Odyssey by the artist Alexander Stoddart. The facade is load-bearing Portland stone, with a minimum thickness of 200mm, tied across a 15mm cavity to brickwork.

A cantilevered staircase is built into the rear of the building, constructed from limestone and a hardwood handrail with ebonised finish.

In the galleries, a Slimdek Floor system spans the principal floors in order to maximise ceiling heights suitable for artwork display. Air conditioning ducts are also designed to run within the gallery walls rather than within dropped ceiling voids.
