Villa by David McLeavy
Originally built as a series of stonemason’s cottages, the gallery’s domestic past is still evident today, through the preserved stone fireplaces, wooden beams and original windows. Engaging with this unique context, McLeavy explores and connects with the historical lineage of the space and the evolution of its role from a private living room to a public gallery.
