Danish Contemporary Arts Gallery

New York, NY  /  Completed 2002 

The Danish Contemporary Arts Gallery is an association that supports and exhibits the work of contemporary Danish artists. In 1997 the DCA left their long term SoHo location and relocated to the emerging arts district in Chelsea. The clients sought an open, universal gallery space suited for the varying requirements of contemporary art. 

In order to preserve the archeological aspects of the historic Chelsea warehouse space, a scheme was developed that inserted an idealized room within the irregular masonry perimeters. Support spaces include a director’s office, a conference space, kitchen, a private viewing space and preparation workshops.
