Team of Kipnis Arquitetos Associados, an architectural practice found in 2003 in São Paulo by Sergio Kipnis, together with a constructor Fernando Millan, created a new base for one of the most significant art gallery in Brazil, Galeria Millan.
The project emerged from the gallery’s need of gaining more exhibit space to present various international artist. As its initial space designed in 2004 by Sergio Kipnis and Fernando Millan ceased to suffice, the management of the gallery involved the same two acclaimed architects to create a new volume named Anexo Galeria Millan, located 50 metres from the original headquarter.
While passing through the sidewalk, a ramp leads to a big courtyard, placed in front of the main entrance. By going through the patio, big sliding door extending over the entire facade, pays special attention. As entering the gallery, there is a great room with a 6 meters high forming an ideal exhibit space for a big scale objects. Going forward, one can get to another pavilion with a lower ceiling-height. The architects located reception’s line with a scullery, bathrooms and a small garden in parallel with the space exhibitions and a reserved area for customers at the back of the building.
