Vielmetter Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California
TOLO Architecture designed the new Downtown Los Angeles gallery space for Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects. The 11,000 square feet gallery is located in an adaptive reuse of a former tire factory. The gallery features numerous large exhibition spaces, a video room, reception area with conference room, break room, 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).
