Close to the Dutch borden, in the German city of Vreden, the Kult is a new cultural hub. It combines a 1.400 sqm artistic-historical museum with some administrative services, the local archives, an educational space, a city market, a shopping area and spaces for events and temporary exhibitions. More? Hmmm.
Although strongly anchored in a contemporary architectural style, the centre aims to integrate itself in the medieval heritage.
A generous atrium welcomes visitors hat leading up to a sculptural staircase to access the museum areas.
The hub is composed of two new bodies added to the four existing ones (listed buildings from 14th and 16th century). Central openings in the atrium and the courtyard provide a well-balanced natural illumination besides identifying the different museum areas and facilitating the orientation within the centre.
Architects: Pool Leber Architekten and Bleckmann Krys Architekten.
