Pace has designed and crafted every element of our new global headquarters to provide a vehicle for artists to tell their stories as richly as they deserve to be told

Pace Gallery’s new Manhattan headquarters is set to open its doors on 14 September.

Designed by New York-based architecture firm Bonetti/Kozerski (B/K), and situated on 540 West 25th Street in Chelsea, the 75,000 sq ft (6,967 sq m) flagship will boast a volcanic stone façade and feature five new indoor and outdoor galleries, a library, and a performance hall.

Once open, the space, which is being developed by Weinberg Properties, will also showcase installations of new work by a variety of contemporary artists, including Alexander Calder, Loie Hollowell, and David Hockney.

Additionally, the renovated building – erstwhile part of a trucking terminal – will house five of Fred Wilson’s Murano glass chandeliers, all of which will be displayed in the seventh-floor exhibition room.

Lighting for the gallery was installed and choreographed by Isometrix Lighting Design, who previously designed fixtures for Pace's Hong Kong centre.

Speaking on the overall design, B/K said: “We were challenged to re-evaluate the gallery paradigm, both in terms of building and gallery design, whilst being supported to make in-depth studies into materiality, natural and artificial light, as well as building construction technologies.

"The result is a project that reflects our close collaboration with both Weinberg Properties and Pace, and a structure that will further enhance the burgeoning Chelsea neighborhood – with a strong street and skyline presence, materials that will age gracefully, and a variety of dynamic indoor and outdoor spaces for people to experience and be inspired by art from around the world.”
