The highly aesthetic and stringent architectural concept from “querkraft” consists mainly of four striking elements. The entrance leads to a presentation depot with an area of around 600 m² after which visitors arrive in the painting and sculpture section.
This part of the building, which is designed as a white cube measuring 160 m in length and 13 m in width with fanlights, provides an exhibition area of around 2,000 m². There follows a separate room for graphics (approx. 500 m²), as well as an annex for the presentation of the gold collection (approx. 350 m²).
Including the foyer, a workshop and the rooms required for infrastructure purposes, the building has an area of around 5,000 m².
The structure, which is extremely reduced in design, closely follows the prevailing site topography. The long gallery section is the only part of the building that is visible from the outside and offers views of the landscape from its terraces. The remainder of the museum is subterranean.
