Michael Hue-Williams Gallery
Located on the upper level of a shared commercial building, the gallery
is the product of tightly organised plan that accommodates all the
elements specified in the brief - gallery, storage and office - without
any sense of crowding, or compromise. Windows in the front and back
walls form the principal organisational element.
Visitors are admitted by means of a communal staircase and reach the gallery -
a cube within a cube - after first encountering the reception area,
library and office, these secondary spaces providing a buffer between
the outside world and the art within. A shop window at street level on
the opposite side of the road provides a changing showcase for art.
