Client: Delhi Art Gallery

Status: Built

Size: 7,000 sq ft

The Delhi Art Gallery, Mumbai is a four-level, century-old structure sitting in a lively and historic precinct that’s undergoing strong cultural revival. Years of terrible neglect and significant damage to this very cramped, former warehouse/repair shop building saw this project emerge and significantly transform into an impressive retrofit and adaptive reuse of splendid Colonial-era architecture. Structurally the building required extensive renovation. Investigative design processes confirmed some of the widely used local Colonial heritage motifs for rhythmic patterns in metal and woodwork, including the exterior façade’s original wrought-iron and stucco features. These elements have been interwoven here to retain heritage value but without anachronistic imitation. DAG Mumbai could be a defining example for rejuvenating other derelict historic districts in urban India. We believe that DAG Mumbai could be the example for rejuvenating other derelict historic districts in Urban India.
