On May 3, Lisson Gallery New York will open beneath the High Line between 23rd and 24th Street. Designed by studioMDA and Studio Christian Wassmann, the 8,500 square foot space is split between a gallery, offices, viewing rooms, and storage. Although the main gallery is directly under the High Line – the steel columns in the photos are actually supports for the elevated railway – it will receive ample sun from dramatically angled skylights along the space’s edge, which also aid to extend the walls vertically. The gallery's polished concrete floors, white walls, and natural light are typical of today's contemporary art spaces, but also maintain the aesthetic of Lisson's other galleries. The public will access the space via 24th Street, while the 23rd Street entrance will be reserved for staff purposes and private functions.

“The architecture is consistent with the aesthetic of the London galleries, with polished concrete floors and an abundance of natural light, provided by two large skylights on either side of the main exhibition space,” says Lisson Gallery. “The space allows for 16-foot ceilings and two massive, undisturbed display walls. The façades will be cast in exposed white concrete, highlighting the entrance at 504 West 24th Street.”
