gmp wins extension to German gallery
German firm gmp has won the contract to design the extension to Kunsthalle Mannheim, a museum of modern art established in 1909.
Responding to the chess board type layout of Mannheim’s inner city, the design is a composition of several cubes, the regularity of which is broken by different heights and widths, and also by the arrangement of squares within the development.
With the concept of a louvred facade, the design clearly distinguishes itself from neighbouring buildings in terms of its colour scheme and materials.
The intention was to choose a warm metal colour which does not replicate the red of the regional sandstone but does not appear cold.
