Dangrove Art Facility

Dangrove is a 10,000m² specialised art storage and operations facility for the White Rabbit Gallery, which houses one of the world’s finest private collections of contemporary Chinese art.

Primarily operating as a storage space with the occasional private event, the art storage is designed to enhance curatorial activity by providing opportunity to view and experience art in the context of a working facility.

The Storeplan team was pleased to be selected to design, supply and install personalised storage solutions for the wide variety of unique art pieces.

The project involved:

  • Dismantle & relocation of existing warehouse storage solutions to the new site in Alexandria, then customisation of existing industrial racking systems to suit the new areas.
  • Three custom structural mezzanine floors in custom paint colour to fit in with the overall aesthetic of the building & internal design
  • New Schaefer warehouse racking systems for both pallet storage and for use as heavy duty shelving with the addition of MDF shelves
  • Cantilever racking for storage of long and difficult to store pieces.

Every now and then we land a project that is a little out of the box and tests our product knowledge, as well as our skills as designers, engineers and project management.

We enjoyed the challenge of such a unique project & working with Aver to fulfil their vision for this new facility.
