1100 Architect to Design Art Storage and Conservation Facility
1100 Architect was selected to design a new art storage and conservation facility in Darmstadt, Germany. The Kunstdepot, or Art Depot, will provide a building to store art objects of all kinds, including paintings, sculptures, works on paper, photographs, and film. A four-story building, the first floor will feature a facility for the conservation, restoration, and archiving of art. With state-of-the-art systems to keep temperature and humidity carefully controlled, the building is also designed to meet Passive House standards. A ceramics-and-plaster façade with integrated vegetation will serve as a climatic buffer. The project is scheduled for completion in 2023.
