The National Art School Gallery - IDEA 2020

The National Art School Gallery


What is the ‘big (IDEA)’ behind this project?
The innovative thinking behind this project was derived from the word ‘Exposure’. Edge’s ‘idea’ was to re-invent the gaol as much more than simply an art school gallery. What was created was a contemporary art space that was dignified yet glamorous and conveyed warmth despite the cold past of its origins. As designers, Edge was aware of the project’s extraordinary heritage attributes and were sensitive to the design by allowing the shell of the space to be the hero and to work with the extraordinary history of the building.
