Project Description

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.
