Frederick Fisher and Partners Architects
A new 8,600 sf addition in what was previously a narrow courtyard between two existing buildings. This addition added to the existing art gallery, adding more than 5,000 sf of gallery space and reconfiguring several existing rooms to improve visitor flow. When the footprint of the new building required the relocation of the galleries’ electrical yard, a major power line and transformer, the team provided a consistent supply of temporary power to maintain the humidity, temperature, lighting, and other environmental conditions that the artworks required. Coordinated with the art department to avoid any impact from vibration or dust to the artwork. Since the Erburu Galleries remained in use throughout the project, the team implemented stringent measures to protect the safety and health of staff and visitors.
