How can contemporary architecture enhance the experience of a great, reconstructed building from the Viking ages?

Lofotr Viking Museum in Borg features the largest Viking-era house ever found. The impressive 83-meter (272-ft) structure is reconstructed in full size, just off the side to the original house site.

Adjacent to the chieftain’s house, we developed a new building to expand the museums amenities. This extension includes a new entrance hall, with reception areas, shops and a museum restaurant, all under one large glass roof that in shape and form resembles the existing building.

Inbetween the new extension and the chieftain`s house there are new spaces for interactive exhibitions and a large auditorium and cinema, partly submerged in the ground. The new buildings create a sequence of volumes which integrate into the landscape.
