At his death, the minimalist painter Guido Molinari
left as a legacy his former atelier/residence. Located in a former bank, the space would be used as a conservation and dissemination center for the artist’s creative work.
The exhibit space, located in the main hall of the former bank, faced two major constraints. Having two facades completely covered by windows, it didn’t have enough display surfaces. Also, some of the artist’s enormous paintings could only be stored within the space. The solution was to design three movable volumes that could contain large format paintings and be used as extra display surfaces. These storage blocks can be moved at will to create a multitude of configurations.
