Serlachius Museum Gösta

Ort: Gösta, Finnland
Wettbewerbsart: offen
Jahr: 2011

The new extension is designed in a plain style in order to harmonize with Joenniemi Manor. On one hand it is directly connected to the existing building, but on the other hand it is set apart. A glazed joined serves as a transparent smooth conjunction between old and new.

The extension can be divided into two structures: a building with service functions and a building with exhibition, treatment and office facilities. They differ in appearance, construction and light concept. The exhibition part is designed as a massive wood-panelled structure. Daylight falls in from the north through shed roofs. Due to large glass facades and a column-based roof the building part with service functions has a lighter appearance. A long high window on the ceiling marks the route of site development.
