Wallpaper* featured 1100 Architect’s newly unveiled renovation of Metro Pictures Gallery. Calling the new space “refreshingly open,” the article says the design led to a “total transformation” of the space. The renovation modified the gallery’s existing layout, adding 16% more exhibition space without increasing the building’s overall footprint. A skylight now brings daylight into the gallery, and a new staircase provides an intimate way of going between upper and lower floors.
