In designing the 7,700-square-foot Hill Art Foundation, which occupies The Getty’s third and fourth floors with its own dedicated entrance on 10th Avenue, Peter Marino Architect created a series of exhibition spaces with maximum spatial flexibility, substantial daylight inside, and views onto the adjacent High Line park. The spaces are designed dynamically for large-scale works, with three floating art walls 14-feet high within a double height space on the third floor. The fourth floor includes four sliding art walls for further flexibility. Windows face all four cardinal directions making for constantly changing natural light within the galleries. A recessed and flexible lighting system allows for both warm and cool temperature lamps to support an art collection that will vary from Old Masters to Contemporary artists in a variety of mediums.

Space for Contemplation

The Hill Art Foundation was conceived as a public exhibition and education space that can simultaneously provide private respite for contemplation. Visitors are encouraged to take their time to enjoy the artwork on display.

Architectural Details

Solid oak floors throughout are complemented by stainless steel detailing, kinon finishes, bookcases in blackened and oil lacquered steel, travertine, marble, and stone.  The interior courtyard garden ensures that light enters from north, east, south, and west.
