Snøhetta chosen as winner of the Ordrupgard Competition


Yesterday it was announced that the Norwegian based architecture firm, Snøhetta is the winner of the Ordrupgaard competition; creating new space for the french collection. The competition was announced March, this year, with the brief to design an extension to the remaining museum, hosting a french collection. In addition the aim was to also create new solutions that could adapt to the existing building and the surrounding landscape. In a unanimous vote the Jury selected the project by Snøhetta called Himmelhagen.

The solution has a dominant gentleness which contrasts the complicated challenge that the brief set. The design maintains the existing entrance to the building designed by Zaha Hadid, and creates a circulation new route which the public comfortably flow through as they visit the different exhibition halls.
