Text description provided by the architects. The Blau Projects Gallery is an interior renovation of an old shed located in the Vila Madalena Neighborhood, a hype area in São Paulo, where a mechanical workshop used to function.

The old state of the building, with its industrial character; and the shape of the site, with a long corridor connecting to the street, served as inspiration for the distribution of the program.

A pocket park marks the transition between the street and the art gallery, welcoming all its visitors while creating a space for events. The materials used in this area are simple and urban, in an attempt to establish a relation between the public and private spaces.

The interior spaces recreate the industrial character of the old building, showing the renovated metallic trusses. The new infrastructure is also exposed, highlighting the difference between what is new and what is existing, while allowing the spaces to be flexible to the various exhibition formats.

Natural diffused light openings were designed in opposite corners of the main exhibition space, in order to configure the interiors while at the same time establishing a relation with the exterior spaces.
