Design plans for a future-proof museum

The new Frans Hals Museum is one museum at two locations (named Hof and Hal) offering an exhibition program in three ‘flavours’: old art, contemporary art and ‘fusion’: a cocktail of the two. In terms of content, we are ready for the future, but to make our accommodations future-proof as well, a physical facelift is inescapable. The designs for this renovation are on display in a small exhibition in Hof.

The plans have been developed in collaboration with the Haarlem-New York-based architectural firm SO – IL. The starting point is a museum of and for the city: low-threshold, optimally visible, hospitable and sustainable. After the renovation we offer a spacious, inviting entrance, a shop and a café at both locations, educational zones for families, comfortable public facilities, a free art salon in the Hal building, an attractive garden and outdoor space, a roof terrace with phenomenal views, fully air-conditioned climate-controlled exhibition rooms in architecturally historic surroundings, future-proof for the coming decades.

The makeover of the Frans Hals Museum is made possible by the BankGiro Loterij.
