De Santos Gallery

-A A +A
2003, Brave/Architecture. 1724 Richmond Ave.

A three-story art gallery slotted onto a formerly residential lot facing a busy street, this sliver of a building makes the most of its limited spatial opportunities. Argentine-born architect Fernando Brave modulated planes of white-painted stucco and of metal siding to produce tranquil proportions, causing the tall, thin building to recede into its site.
