Douglas Hyde Gallery

This exhibition space was designed for the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Nassau Street, Dublin. Designated 'Gallery 2', the room supports an increasing need for flexibility in exhibition design, alternative shows and multi-media installations.

The space is intentionally neutral; it has flexible lighting and hanging systems to allow for a multiplicity of exhibition options. Its particular character derives from its relationship to the main gallery - the small space as an intense counterpoint to its much larger volume - and in the design of its access door. Like a camera aperture, the moving panels form a total of sixteen variations of openings to the gallery supporting different approaches or controlled views to work contained within it.
