London, United Kingdom 2001–2004

Client: Gagosian RIBA Award

Caruso St John has designed many projects for Gagosian since their first London gallery in Heddon Street in 2000. The Gagosian Gallery at Britannia Street in King’s Cross opened in 2004. The gallery has a ground floor space of 1,400 square meters, and provides three connected galleries, accommodating the possibility of a large single exhibition or smaller parallel shows. The largest gallery – twenty-eight metres long and almost six metres high – is a new building, while the other galleries are within existing structures.
