Hauser & Wirth Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

Half of the upper floor of this former brewery was fully renovated to house a contemporary art gallery. The pre-existing floor to ceiling glass façade traverses the entire length of the space and functions as the spine of the project, linking the exhibition spaces with the entry, private showroom, and archive and administration areas. The tall ceiling offered an opportunity to insert a mezzanine for offices.
