Caruso St John Architects

2009–2010
Location: Paris, FR
Client: Gagosian Gallery
Project Status: Built

The Gagosian Gallery Paris is located in the 8e arrondissement, near the Champs-Élysées. The project is organized over four levels within a former townhouse. Tall, well-proportioned rooms and floors made in large slabs of sand stone and oak parquet, ensure that the elegance of the original townhouse is retained in the spaces of the new gallery. At the rear of the ground floor, beyond the extent of the townhouse, is located a major new gallery space lit by a large central roof light. All of the art spaces within the project provide a tightly controlled environment to international museum standards. The Gagosian Gallery was undertaken in collaboration with Paris based architect Jean-Francois Bodin.
