AYUMI GALLERYは、神楽坂にある、英国のハーフティンバー風の木造建築の1階にある貸ギャラリーです。

1984年の開廊以来、造形活動をされている多くの方々の発表の空間として、また、神楽坂を訪れる人々が気軽に立ち寄り楽しめる場所として親しまれてきました。
この建物は、大正後期から昭和初期にかけて英国で建築を学んだ建築家、高橋博(1902~1991)によって、自身のアトリエとして戦後間もなくの1953年に建てられたものです。2011年には登録有形文化財(建造物)に指定されました。
内部は漆喰や木の自然素材に包まれた柔らかな空間です。ギャラリーでの展覧会は手作業によるものづくりを中心とし、つくる人とみる人がこの空間と一体となり、何かを共有し、新しい発見が生まれることを待望しています。

AYUMI GALLERY is an art gallery for rent on the ground level of an early 1950s half-timbered building that is a blend of Japanese and English style, located in Kagurazaka, Tokyo.

The gallery has an exhibition space suitable for groups or artists and independent curators.

Since its opening in 1984, AYUMI GALLERY has been a popular presentation space for artists active. It is also an interesting destination for visitors to Kagurazaka.

The building was constructed in 1953, shortly after World War II, by Hiroshi Takahashi (1902-1991) as his atelier. Takahashi studied architecture in England from the late Taisho period to the early Showa period (1920-1930).  This is reflected in the distinct architectural style of the building.

In 2011, the building was designated as a registered tangible cultural property (structure) by the Japanese government, recognizing it as an important part of Japanese architectural history.  The inside of the building has exposed beams and surfaces showcasing the natural materials used in construction. This creates a warm, comfortable environment inside the exhibition space.

We look forward to creators and viewers of art coming together in the space to share and inspire new discoveries.
