Completion date


DRPILLA was responsible for delivering structural engineering design services for the conversion of a pre-existing six-story Georgian-style townhouse located at 16 E 55th Street into a distinctive space for contemporary art. The renovation brings new life to the early 20th-century building accommodating more than 5,600 square feet of new exhibition space spread across the first three levels.

Enhanced Gallery Layout

A wall on the second floor was removed to create a dramatic overlook into the skylit, 22-foot-tall exhibition space. The basement and top three floors accommodate art handling, offices, private viewing rooms, and an artist studio.
