A new gallery on the foreshore
Directly across the road from the Petone Beach, the gallery will be in the square looking building shown in to the right of the photo. Right outside the gallery is a crossing that leads to the Petone foreshore promenade and the boardwalk platform between the dune grass on the beach.
This building (no not the new one on the right, - I wish, but the squarish, cream building on the left) will be my new studio/gallery and icecream parlour. The original building of the block, tower on the left, was built in 1937 and was known then as 'Mrs Deans Tearooms'. The one on the right was built in 1939 as two bedsit apartments and the block in the middle was built-in sometime in between. My intention is to re create the art deco aspect of the left and right buildings, demolish the center and build a new/modern, mainly glass, center section.
