The new building is an insert to the existing volume and is detached from it both physically and in an expressive way.
A unique volume that concentrate the extension in a simple design and plays with the existing building both as regards shapes, explicitly modern, and materials. Brushed and heat-treated larch, split stone (gray gneiss) for the base and titanium zinc for the roof (rheinzink).
