Fylkingen / Alteration of a performance space / 2009 – 2013

A new entrance, foyer, mezzanine floor and passageways expand the possible uses of this performance space. Added elements are made out of wood to facilitate future changes. // A site-based dialogue guided the process: We drew proposals to scale in the space, tried out concepts through full scale models and were in charge of securing funding for the alterations.

When open the library is shared between two cultural institutes. // Interiors are made out of basic building materials such as mdf and wood, with detailing informed by existing pillar structure and the robust materiality of the building.
