Phillips de Pury & Company

A new auction house and London base for international art dealers, Phillips de Pury & Company. The space for Phillips is within the main body of an Edwardian sorting office in Victoria, London. The project was phased to allow a launch auction, a large contemporary art sale and a full opening in October 2008.

In October 2007 Phillips de Pury held their annual contemporary art sale in the building. The building works continued behind screens and partitions and the challenge was to complete the unfinished parts while allowing the completed galleries to be fully occupied. We designed the final spaces to retain the drama and quality of the existing building as much as possible - the roughness of the existing brickwork contrasting with pristine white walls for the exhibition spaces.
