West Hollywood, USA
- Tighe Architecture
The 1500 square foot gallery is located in the Arts district of West Hollywood, California. A new load-bearing wall bisects the building on the diagonal. Two distinct zones were created differentiating the gallery from the support spaces and separating the public from the private functions. A forced perspective was created within the gallery. The space tapers in plan and section out to the garden courtyard. The roof plane of the gallery was lifted allowing light to enter the exhibition hall. The reflecting pool extends the gallery floor plane, expanding the perspective beyond the building envelope.
