The headquarters of the collection is a small building in the garden of the private house of the owner, Ingvild Goetz, who wanted a space where she could temporarily exhibit some works.
The planning regulations of the residential area where it is located restricted the footprint and the height, such that it is made up of one excavated floor and one upper floor as exhibition space. The floor between, on ground level, houses a library and an office. Initially conceived for private use, it has no lobby nor other extra spaces, even though it is presently open to the public with temporary exhibitions of works from the collection.
