Scope and Content

File documents an executed project for the Robert Fraser Gallery, in London, England. The renovation converted smaller office spaces into an art gallery, office space and viewing area, and added basement storage. Drawings include reflected ceiling plans, details for window display units, furniture, and custom design lighting fixtures. One detail section for the proposed lighting shows a metal space frame which incorporates adjustable spot lighting and plastic egg crate shaped diffusers with fluorescent tube lighting. Final custom lighting fixtures were composed of aluminum brackets and lighting channels. A continuous picture rail channel was positioned above the aluminum bracket, forming a visually unified multi-use fixture. Material in this file was produced between 1961 and 1966.

File contains design development drawings, working drawings, photographic material, and textual records.
