This seventeenth Century building has been transformed into a museum. We decided to keep the original historic building intact, only removing the heavy stone floor slabs that were causing the massive timber structure of the old building to subside.

There are two further interventions; an external lift shaft with stairs and services on the rear facade, and on the side elevation, a new exhibition building with its own garden. The outline of the extension follows the form of the existing museum.

In the interior of the extension the ceiling incline is subdivided; one half is a double pitch and the other a mono-pitch thereby creating an axially symmetric and an independent space in one volume. On outside, the extension roof follows the line of the existing historic building. Inside, the extension is its own independent space.
