The task of the competition for the Serlachius Museum Gösta was to design an extension containing five times the area of the existing museum.

  • Location: Mäntäa, Finland

Hidden in the forest next to the existing building the low-rise extension maintains the visible beauty of the existing landscape and the characteristic focal point of the historic museum building. Flowing down the hilly landscape between the trees the building fills in the clearances of the forest. Inserted into the amorphous, fully glazed space are closed rectangular exhibition rooms. The visitor route alternates between the exhibitions and the surrounding space. In this way nature will be the fifth exhibition space of the Museum.
