Gallery Lane Cove is a highly adaptive exhibition space for Lane Cove Council (Sydney). The new foyer, defined by a bold composition of black & white joinery and ceiling elements, forms a threshold to flexible gallery spaces beyond. The gallery is home to Centrehouse Art and Leisure and the Lane Cove Art Society.
Operable screens and panels slide and/or pivot to facilitate an infinite range of configurations within the limits of an existing volume. The varying wall positions allow the clients to dramatically change the character of the interior.
Sliding panels allow control of natural light depending on particular needs.
Reception sits within the carved black threshold. The “thick” threshold also contains offices, service and storage spaces required by the clients.
Signage animates the upper level entry, whilst new doors connect to an existing elevated terrace.
