Ambiente Gallerie

Design and function

Dr. Kari Boudreau, the owner of Ambiente Gallerie in Minneapolis, has always been on the cutting edge of art integration with her medical practice. She hired architect Ali Heshmati to design a series of privacy rooms for servicing customers while at the same time adding art to the lobby. These structures are connected to an intricate pulley system that allows her to raise them to the ceiling to clear up floor space for special events. We embraced their vision and turned it into reality.

Creating Ali’s vision from a CAD file starts with a scale-model (shown below). From there we can determine how the fabric will behave (to a degree) and work out any unforeseen circumstances before materials are purchased and the full-scale production begins.
