reiulf ramstad proposes geometric museum with curved roofing in finland

embrace the encounter between people and art

Norway-Denmark architectural firm Reiusf Ramstad Arkitekter has unveiled its proposal for a new art museum in Noormarkku, Finland. Called ‘brädgården artworks’, the design is based on a simple and clear idea: to embrace the encounter between man and art with an attractive spatial composition. the resulting project takes shape as a geometric structure with a curved soft roof and playful circular openings perforated through the facade.

future-oriented and site-adapted

according to reiulf ramstad arkitekter (find more here), the brädgården art museum is a ‘future-oriented and site-adapted proposal, in which content and ambitions are transparently expressed’. the new building emerges as a rational, simple geometric volume with a curved, soft roof. vertical elements adorn the structure, oriented northwest to the dam and the center of the area, orienting the building towards its predecessors. meanwhile, the facades present an arrangement of slender wooden columns, combined with glass surfaces, generating a nordic light character and a clear identity. circular openings in different sizes add variety to the building’s exterior, along with a fun, exciting touch to the overall design.

the scheme has a clean square floor plan on two levels. the ground floor welcomes the public and houses the main facilities: lobby, cafe, multipurpose room and operating areas. the two more permanent exhibition spaces are freely organized on the second floor. the two levels are connected by generous stairs and a large double-sided elevator. this offers great operational flexibility and varied possibilities for many types of use, such as exhibitions, events and meetings.
