White Cube Mason’s Yard opened in September 2006. It is located off Duke Street, St. James's, home of the original White Cube gallery, on a site that was previously an electricity sub-station.
Designed by MRJ Rundell & Associates, it is the first free-standing building to be built in the St James's area for more than 30 years. The building houses a main, basement floor gallery which is a naturally lit, double-height space with a second gallery on street level providing 5000 ft² of exhibition space.
White Cube Mason's Yard continues with an international, high profile programme of exhibitions and was launched with an inaugural exhibition by Gabriel Orozco.

I'm sure there is a more straightforward way of coming here but this is how I usually get there.
The last show I saw here was Sam Taylor...more

The White Cube in Masons Yard is an extension of the other White Cube gallery in Hoxton Square. It's a good extension, too: the space is large and the artists shown here are extremely well-known. Definitely worth the hassle to find it to have a look around, it's a fairly unlikely space in a notoriously vintage area.more
