David Klein Gallery | Detroit

Detroit, MI

The David Klein Gallery opened a second location on Washington Boulevard in downtown Detroit. Larger than it’s first gallery, this new space will be the gallery’s flagship location with room for more elaborate showings and programs and a larger inventory of art.

Although the new 4,000 square foot space will be home to the gallery’s contemporary program, it is housed in what used to be a bookstore in one of Detroit’s older buildings. The reuse of an older building echoes the revitalization of the city.

Centric Design Studio re-designed the interior of the new gallery. The new design features a grand entrance and reception area. An existing mezzanine was demolished, and the space now boasts a 14 foot high ceiling. Existing moldings and architectural ornamentation remain.

There was very little office space, so CDS designed a combined office and art viewing room for consultation services for private, public, and corporate art collectors.

“Our new space will be ideal for exhibiting larger-scale contemporary projects. I think our artists will be inspired.” David Klein in a recent article.
