From a Court Chamber Archive to a Literature Museum

"Let the place speak"

This is our motto for handling historically unique fixtures as circular wooden shelves fill the floors in narrow rows. We integrated the exhibition directly into the beautiful shelf structure.

We laid varied pathways through the new museum as targeted and economical interventions.

The exhibit is a result of a competition that Planet Architects and our partner firm, BWM Architects, won together.
