Close to the Museum aan de Stroom (MAS), opposite Willemdok on Napoleonskaai, stands the Schoots + Van Duyse art gallery. At the heart of the gallery is a huge void linking two levels of exhibition space. An airily constructed, apparently floating stair in a contrasting colour emphasizes the spatial quality of void, as do the lighting strips in the ceiling. The lighting lines have a prominent formal presence, but they cast a uniform light, thereby ensuring that whatever the arrangement, all the exhibited art is shown to equal advantage.
