Abstract sculpture at Blain Southern
Blain Southern sculpture exhibition.
Blain Southern exterior of building on Hanover Street.

The gallery is located on the ground and lower ground floors of a new Squire & Partners office building in Mayfair.

The entrance is articulated by three large pieces of furniture – the reception desk, a tall bookcase for catalogues, and a long bench by the windows to Hanover Square; made in European walnut and leather.

The main gallery uses a rhythm of shallow beams providing structure for the lighting and other services and serves to locate the single column that is off-centre in the room. The floor is made in large slabs of precast concrete, with a lightly polished surface. A wide stair, made in the same precast concrete, leads to viewing, storage and technical rooms downstairs.
