On South Park in San Francisco, the Gallery House combines a public art gallery and a private residence into a single building. The clients, prominent collectors of pieces by female contemporary artists, requested a building that provided overlapping functions, admitting and restricting public access to private spaces as the clients wished. 

On a project challenged with creating an interior space characterized by openness and light in the face of overloaded programmatic requirements, Loisos + Ubbelohde brought light into a solid, narrow building. Vertical glazing, skylights, and appropriate finish selections provided desired light penetration and reduced glare, while also addressing the specialized lighting needs of artwork exhibition. The resulting main gallery is illuminated from the front by street-facing windows and the rear is lit by a long skylight that washes daylight along the exhibition wall. A translucent glass curtain wall provides luminosity and a shadowy awareness of the park outside while protecting the interiority of the gallery experience.
