Art Central, London: our new home for storage and gallery spaceAugust 10, 2015
We are set to unveil a new purpose-built facility close to Central London that provides secure storage and acts as a gallery extension for clients who want to sell their art. Art Central will be based in Union Road, London SW4 and is expected to open during the summer.
More than just a storage facility
We’ve always been renowned for keeping art and artefacts safe – both in storage and in transit. But now, we’ve invested heavily in new facilities. As well as having "bonded" customs status, Art Central will feature modern extras that could change the face of art storage. These include private client rooms, viewing rooms, client work areas, meeting rooms and a photography room.
What would you do with a new gallery extension?
The emphasis is not only on keeping art safe and secure (thanks to full temperature and humidity control inside secure loading and managed secure storage) but on providing a place where art can be viewed and sold. David Preston, General Manager at Crown Fine Art, said: "It is an exciting concept that is already being very well received. We believe clients will increasingly see our warehouse not just as somewhere to store art but as a "gallery extension" – somewhere where they can invite potential buyers to come and view, and buy, art.”
A unique opportunity
Art Central is close to Overground and Underground stations and is convenient for Battersea, Kensington and Chelsea as well as the gallery districts of Mayfair and St James’s. David said: “The art handling sector has needed a facility like this for a long time and our patience in waiting for a suitable location has really paid off. We believe Art Central provides the best and most convenient services in the sector and will be a real boost for our clients." David added "It’s a big moment for Crown Fine Art but we are not resting on our laurels. We have many more exciting and innovative products and services being launched soon. This is a very important time in the UK art handling sector."
