Restoration, conversion and redesigning of the existing folklore museum and its permanent collection. The characteristics of the historical structure are respected. In separating the new structure from the historical substance the authentic character of the existing structure is preserved. The exterior walls remain unaffected as they are characteristic interfaces between inside and outside and an essential feature of the former monastery complex. Recent interventions can be identified by the choice of the material: glass, metal, lighting. The museum’s symbol is a bridge of glass connecting the main building and the historical „Trachtensaal“ that is an exhibit itself.
