Galerie Ashiya Schule

Naoko Horibe + Horibe Associates architect's office as Architects

Galerie Ashiya Schule manages and promotes contemporary artists.


Because the lot is located on a corner facing a relatively lively street, the client requested an elegant exterior design that would symbolically represent the gallery.


The oversized wooden doors fulfill this symbolic role, drawing visitors into a world that exists apart from everyday life, despite the very short distance between street and gallery. On either side of the doors, tall, narrow windows give passersby a glimpse of the work on display inside and the worldview of the artists who created it, contributing to the galleryfs mission of promoting modern art.
