Artis Naples, otherwise known as Baker Museum is quickly becoming the premier art museum in southwest Florida. From the all-glass marquee near the main entrance to segmented window walls, the Architect created a piece of art in his building, worthy of the art housed within.
Artis Naples is expanding the Baker Museum to include a new event center, multi-purpose classroom, break-out gallery, and outdoor terrace bar with a catering kitchen. It is an approximately 17,000-square-foot, three-story addition with some renovations, including a new gift shop in the existing building. The addition is a CMU block and steel frame building. The entire building, both the addition and existing portion, will receive a stone and metal panel rainscreen cladding. The project also opens up the courtyard for better pedestrian flow and will add several pre-cast benches and a new water feature.
