Galerie Magazine – Abandoned Church Reborn as New Carpenters Workshop Gallery
After being badly damaged by the devastating 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, St. Joseph’s Church in San Francisco sat vacant until 2016, when interior designer and event planner extraordinaire Ken Fulk began working to restore the 22,000-square-foot landmark. Now, after a painstaking three-year renovation, the 1913 Romanesque revival church (which Fulk owns) has been gloriously reborn as the St. Joseph’s Arts Society, a cultural space that houses a permanent branch of Carpenters Workshop Gallery on its 9,000-square-foot mezzanine.
Founded in 2006 by Julien Lombrail and Loïc Le Gaillard in a literal carpenter’s workshop, the gallery quickly gained a reputation as one of the world’s leading places to discover functional works of art. The original location in London’s Chelsea neighborhood gained a sibling two years later in nearby Mayfair. Outposts in Paris and New York followed in 2011 and 2015, respectively.
