This Single Gallery Looks Like Different Buildings from the Exterior

When discussing art exhibits, rarely does the gallery facade or exterior garner as much interest as the pieces featured inside. The Newport Street Gallery however, challenges this notion by utilizing almost an entire row of buildings to create one unified interior space. From the outside, the gallery facade is rather mundane and lackluster, but most people are unaware that these seemingly different buildings create a collaged exterior for an art exhibit.

Once inside, the expansive studio is a large and unified space. Plain white walls cover the perimeter of the gallery with cement floors throughout. Engineered brick staircases connect the dual level studio. The gallery will also have an aptly themed pharmacy-style cafe that opens next year, perhaps referring to the building's deceptively unimpressive exterior.
