Our ambition was to completely reimagine the client experience in our building—from arrival into our lobby, and the path taken to view an exhibition and participate in an auction, through to collecting new purchases . We are thrilled with the way Shohei Shigematsu and OMA New York have realized our vision for a dynamic space that can serve our clients today, and grow with our business and the market into the future.
We wanted to embody Sotheby’s ambition to reinvigorate and enhance the client experience by introducing high-—flexibility through reorganization of programs and diversification of gallery spaces. The new headquarters is designed for openness and discovery—all public facing programs are shifted to lower levels, unlocking the public potential of the building. A taxonomy of galleries can be used separately or as clusters to allow curatorial freedom, driven by business model shifts and expanding repertoire of programming.
