Situated in the City Park of the renaissance town Kalmar, the new museum is added to a restaurant pavilion dating from the 1930s by Swedish modernist architect Sven-Ivar Lind. It's a black 4-level cube clad with large scale wooden panels punctuated by large glazed openings. It houses both the Kalmar Collection of Modern Art and provides spaces for temporary exhibitions. Almost domestic in scale it still provides a variety of exhibition conditions. The 2 main spaces are the White Box where one side can open up completely to the exterior of the park, and the top floor gallery that is lit by shed light shafts doubling its ceiling height. One of the architectural main features is the open stair spiraling the full height of the building, with 4 floors, each different, stacked on top of each other create a vertical walk up into the greenery of the trees with a series of different spacial experiences while offering views of the environs; the Kalmar Castle, the lake and the city centre.
