Located in the Museum district of Munich, the new Brandhorst Museum is a rectangular box three-storeys high, including the basement, which houses a private contemporary art collection.
The authors' intention was to create a facade which was also an abstract painting. The exterior skin is made up of several layers: in front of the structure and the insulation layer, comes a sheet of two-tone folded microperforated metal which absorbs traffic noise. In front, the glazed ceramic pieces are located. Three different colour ranges (light, medium and dark) cover the building, composing different volume zones.
