David Chipperfield Architects was appointed the prestigious new mixed-use building in Atlanta, Georgia including luxury condominiums, a private dining club, retail facilities and a new contemporary art gallery. One Museum Place will sit in the heart of midtown Atlanta on Peachtree Street, opposite Woodruff Arts Center, which includes Richard Meier’s 1983 High Museum of Art and the Wieland Pavilion – Renzo Piano’s recent addition for contemporary art. The fabulous location overlooks the Ansley Park residential neighbourhood, containing some of the city’s oldest family homes. The $135 m 400,000 sq ft mid-rise building will contain over 80 apartments, varying in size from 2000 to over 6000 sq ft. A 15,000 sq ft contemporary art gallery will provide highly flexible space for temporary shows including those by a resident artist programme.
