Featuring in The Local Project
The Local Project recently shared insight into the architectural and interior design objectives behind the new gallery at 424 Malvern Road, Prahran.
This article considers the insightful interior design work of interior designer Georgina Jeffries, and how she has curated a space that perfectly displays contemporary art within a relaxed and refined environment. Additionally, the work of architect John Wardle has carved out a gallery that is approachable and open to its surroundings.
The Local Project frames Otomys as an “an active contributor to the lively nature of the streetscape” that champions a new approach to the traditional gallery space.
“Celebrating the idea of community and breaking down barriers to the art world, the space becomes the physical embodiment of the gallery’s ethos.
Whilst the white walls are synonymous with a gallery experience, they are combined with character-rich detailing that grounds the space.
Ensuring the incorporation of natural light was key to the ensuing approach, allowing the artworks to engage with the changing seasons and reflect the encompassing context.”
