Project description

The outline of the project is born out of our will to preserve the current physical and visual approach to the Follo Museum complex. Partly hidden behind a rocky hill covered with trees and mosses, the existing building defines a strong horizontal skyline. Organized in a crescent wrapping around the hill, the new buildings extend this roofscape under the tree canopies. The new workshop is a hybrid space, at the intersection between a museum and a functional workshop, and addresses several audiences at once. The program is divided into three buildings—the Museum, the Byggehall and the Læringsfabrikk—interconnected through a landscape and architectural promenade.
