Vielmetter Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California
TOLO Architecture designed a second gallery space for Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects in downtown Los Angeles in collaboration with Anderson Studio. The new 11,000 square feet gallery will be located in an adaptive reuse of a former tire factory. The gallery will feature a large exhibition room, video room, reception area with conference room, breakroom, office, and storage area. TOLO’s design focused on maintaining the character of the old tire factory and inserting a series of floor-to-ceiling white walls to display the artwork. Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects represents a variety of Los Angeles-based artists including TOLO collaborator Yunhee Min (Red Carpet in C and Pasadena Gateway).
