East London practice’s design for rural Danish project approved
Young east London practice Galmstrup has secured permission to create a 1,200sq m Museum of Monastic Life in the Danish countryside.
The development will be contructed in a 2.4ha park overlooking the Mossø lake, around 20km south-west of Aarhus, which features the ruins of a medieval monastery. It will contain a selection of skeletons and artefacts excavated from the site, as well as viewing areas and research facilities.
Galmstrup founder Anne Marie Galmstrup said the practice’s starting point for the project had been to maintain the ruin and collection together on the heritage site at the same time as respecting the surrounding nature.
