Gallery, Cafe & Retail Building
Three complementary programs are housed within one large, open air volume. Two wedges of space are defined by a solid program block in the centre. The gallery sits to the north, the café to the south, and all support elements (washrooms, storage, compact retail and a finishing kitchen) are contained within the block.
All program elements can retract into the program block, creating a highly flexible rental venue for events. The walls of the building open seasonally to support free flow of people in and out of the building, creating a permeable retail storefront and framing views into the gallery space.
