The museum is to be perched on the side of the Island of Averøy in the Trondheim Fjord of Norway. It was designed to house the Historic artifacts from the Island’s history and as the gateway building to a museum park consisting of a number of preserved log and post constructed buildings.
At the heart of the building is a curved spine wall which separated the exhibition space from the back of house rooms. The wall symbolises the Island and provides a 3 dimensional exhibition space with exhibited items located in the various niches and tables formed by the eroded stonework. The roof of the exhibition space curves hull like up the face of the spine wall with a separation between the two elements allowing natural light to cascade down the wall.
