Peterson Rich Office has converted a former 1890s residential block into a public art gallery in New York's Lower East Side neighbourhood.
The gallery acts as the New York flagship for Perrotin and involved the complete adaptive reuse and redesign of The Beckenstein Building.
The building has evolved from residential lofts to commercial use, and now functions as an open, flexible contemporary art gallery and workspace. Because of its scale and varied uses, the building functions more like an institution than a commercial art gallery.
Architect: Peterson Rich Office
