Paulo Darzé Gallery

Paulo Darzé Gallery

The project of the gallery, developed in partnership with DB Arquitetos, originated in the renovation of a 1950’s property located in the neighborhood of Victoria, in Salvador. The minimalism of the main façade, which gains a dramatic atmosphere at night with lighting effects, was maintained in the interior. The elimination of walls created spacious spaces, where the owner can install several types of support for the exhibition of the works of art. The whole building was conceived to emphasize the colors and forms of the exposed objects of art. Therefore, the walls and the floor received neutral tones, which also give the sensation of spaciousness.
