Art Porters is a contemporary art gallery located on the ground floor of a conservation shophouse in Singapore. The brief was to create a space that is a blank canvas for the constant rotation of art that will be exhibited there, with plenty of storage space to hold artwork that are not on display. Divided into the upper gallery at the front and the lower gallery at the back, the space also had to be easily converted into an events space. The material palette is purposefully spare, with a patterned tile flowing from the five foot way into the gallery, and transitioning into cement floors and white painted walls with the original brick wall showing through at the top. A sliver of brass marks the entrance. The upper and lower gallery is connected through a short flight of staircase behind a mirror door. A pantry counter and blue walls sit at the end of the lower gallery bookending the space.
