STORSTRØM ART MUSEUM
The new art museum forms a ‘new’ manor house in the grounds with its own axis to the new approach road. The building is shaped like a crystalline facade, luminous in the darkness of winter and radiant in summer sunshine – like a beautiful box hinting at some-thing unique inside. The facades do not reveal the functions inside the building but support the feeling that this compact building has very special contents. In this way, the design clearly meets our wish to present the museum as single structure with a single overall function.
The museum’s strict organization, with all exhibition areas located on the first floor, makes the works of art the unmistakable centre of attention, free of other distractions to disturb the visitors’ experience. Visitors will also find much of beauty and quality to appreciate in the surroundings themselves, finely balanced with the works of art.
