Art Gallery
New York, NY


New York contemporary art gallery Helena Anrather invited Studio Atomic to design lighting for the gallery’s new 2,300 square foot space on the Bowery in lower Manhattan. The upper floor location includes an extended street-facing window which spans the entire length of the building's façade.

The gallery preserved the original wooden ceiling above the perimeter curtain walls for art display and the lighting design features suspended fixtures that float in space, framing the upper void with a continuous structural line. To provide maximal flexibility for exhibition configurations, additional parallel lighting tracks were installed on the ceiling. The gallery space extends toward the back with additional rooms featuring lower ceilings and natural light that filters in from double hung windows.
