One of Germany’s largest private collections of art and literature now has its own home in the new Museum Brandhorst in Munich. The building is created by the esteemed German architectural firm Sauerbruch Hutton, which is known for creating individual solutions and architecture with a strong personality. Museum Brandhorst is no exception.

All the galleries have white walls and solid Dinesen Oak plank floors, which form a discreet background for the artwork. The rest of the interior is equally breathtaking. The sense of spaciousness, the colour scheme and the materials create an airy, natural ambience. The architecture makes room for the art collection, and the variation among the individual rooms make it an exciting experience to move through the museum. The size, layout and proportions of the rooms vary on the three floors, which have an average ceiling height of nine metres. Ceilings with a textile finish ensure pleasant and even light that adapts to changes in natural light. The ground floor features a number of smaller galleries to explore.

“We decided on the solid floorboards from Dinesen, not just because of the extraordinary quality and subtle feeling of their surface, which adds a private atmosphere to the room. But the unusual size of the floorboards creates a type of leap of scale, which induces a pleasant confusion and makes a different perception of the size of the room possible.”
