An extension to a steel sculptor's warehouse workshop, the art gallery is a volume comprised in sheet steel that is meant to be a sculptural artifact in itself. The program was to be an annexe like gallery and cafe that invites passerbys into the artists space giving them a glimpse of his work and process.

The gallery also curates and promotes local artist work. The steel volume is detailed with glass to allow in light along the stairwell under which water flows down into a cafe space that is open to the public.
