The design for the fašade renovation of the museum pertains to entirely replacing the existing fašade with a modular fašade. The ground floor is fully glazed. As such, the auditorium will have the desired open relation with the public area: showpiece and shop window of the museum. The floor is fitted with enclosed profiled panels that serve as filling for the frameworks of the modular fašade. The restoration workshop receives its required day light via skylights, while the closed frontage can be used to house all sorts of systems. A fold-up section in the closed fašade meets the Health & Safety Act, which stipulates views on the outside world from the workplace.
