Borgarsyssel Folk Museum
Østfoldmuseet “Borgarsyssel” (The Storyteller). The key notion of the architectural strategy is the location’s natural features and the use of a limited material palette. The project is situated in an old “culturescape,” and special attention is paid to integrate the building into its surroundings. The design is based on simple geometrical prisms, lines, and slabs composed into a complex layout of rooms and functions. Critical functions and lines of communication are emphasized, and the building expresses a balance of functional efficiency and open perspectives.
