Weltmuseum Vienna delivers new exhibition space, auditorium, shop and café
Hoskins Architects’ redevelopment of Vienna’s Weltmusuem is welcoming its first wave of summer visitors since the completion of the £19.2m project – in collaboration with Ralph Appelbaum Associates.
The practices won an international competition to update the museum – housed in the historic Hofburg Palace – in 2013, and delivered a scheme with a contemporary multifunction “cube” in front of the main entrance, new reception and introductory spaces, café, shop and auditorium.
Hoskins said the design incorporated a “consistent architectural language” that was sensitive to the building’s historic context and that the practice was very proud of the standard of results that had been realised.
