White Cube art gallery opened its doors on schedule to a new major exhibition space of 5440 square meters on a 1.7 acre site in Bermondsey Street, South London. This is now the largest of White Cube’s three London Galleries.
A seventies-built warehouse was converted into gallery exhibition spaces, private viewing rooms, a 60-seat auditorium, bookshop, offices and warehouse facilities.
Working on a restricted site in a busy urban location, our tight completion deadline had to coincide with the official opening of London’s Frieze Art Fair. The project was fast-tracked to completion in under 40 weeks, including installing a new roof and structural steel frame.
Designed by Casper Mueller Kneer Architects, the new galleries feature seamless white walls, smooth power-floated concrete flooring and expansive, uncluttered spaces, to let the exhibits themselves take centre stage.
