After 12 years in the business, Shalini Ganendra Fine Art has moved from its previously clandestine base to a swanky new location in PJ. The new gallery was designed by internationally lauded eco-architect Ken Yeang, famed for his bioclimactic buildings, and he’s created a very impressive space. In the model of 21st century bare concrete walls and clean, minimalist lines, the Gallery Residence’s architecture incorporates various experimental features like the down-draft wind chimney, which helps to keep the ambient internal temperature even. (All the better to maintain those paintings with.)
The modern feel of the architecture is reflective of the art it houses, which maintains SGFA’s signature specialisation in Asian contemporary art and design. The space accommodates room for entertaining and a lecture theatre for public programmes.
