ambulatory carl-orff museum
the existing building is extended to accommodate the new carl-orff museum. the project takes shape from the boundaries of the lot and from the existing architectural elements such as the courtyard, the pergola and a circular water basin. the courtyard separates the new and the old interventions, illuminating the new interior spaces. the pergola joins the two existing volumes above the extension at the first floor like the old portico at the ground floor. a circular patio, whose shape remembers that one of the existing water basin, illuminates the new museum areas. this shape also affects the façade which is curved near the main entrance. different materials and loggias in elevations create a diversified image of the building with different lights and shadows. The result is a green roof that silently fits into the landscape, a peaceful place surrounded by natural and historical features.
