contributed by Studio-M10

The design for the façade renovation of the museum pertains to entirely replacing the existing façade with a modular façade. 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 façade. 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 façade meets the Health & Safety Act, which stipulates views on the outside world from the workplace.
