metroscapes imagines an art gallery in belgrade defined by curving terraces.
Shanghai studio Metroscapes have imagined a curving white art gallery with cascading terraces, inserted into a hillside in the serbian captial of belgrade. entitled ‘belgrade city art gallery’ the project overlooks the confluence of the sava and danube rivers, inhabiting one of the most significant views of the city’s old town.
In addition to commercial and technical areas, the art gallery is home to a café and restaurant, all while providing access to the most notable element of the space, the main balcony. Two large balconies are then positioned on the left and right of the glass facade, one upper and one lower, curving around the side of the building.
“The design of the building itself should have the goal of enhancing the image of the city, but at the same time inherit its values and perfectly fit in it,” explains the studio.
on the ground floor, the main exhibition space opens onto a large exterior patio, allowing exhibitions to spill out into the open air during the warmer months.
