Architecture as Evocative As the Art Inside

StudioMDA, Markus Dochantsci's international architecture firm, reimagined the European arcade to turn the conventional art gallery on its head. The free-flowing design and street-level visibility creates an inviting passage for collectors, curators and enthusiasts to connect. An evolving collective of domestic and international galleries contribute to the bustling neighborhood’s culture and, in turn, partake in its eclectic energy.


A cool spot to perk up... or win(e)d down.

Il Piccolo Ristoro is High Line Nine’s on-site café, serving up authentic Italian caffé, paninis, pastas, gelato, and freshly made pastries. Take a pause in your Chelsea gallery walk for a quick espresso, or enjoy a leisurely meal on the terrace.

The European arcade, reinterpreted.

High Line Nine runs beneath the vein of the historic High Line between 27th and 28th streets. Outside, exposed columns and rustic steel beams echo the neighborhood’s industrial history. Inside, the unique white spaces await the possibilities of the future. A seamless and free-flowing passage connects the nine evolving galleries. Abundant natural light from skylights in each space illuminates the curations on view. Experience the juxtaposition of glass and light, quiet spaces and bold industrial lines. And discover the sensation of being rooted in the past while celebrating the visions of artists and innovators inside.
