Architecture by @snohetta "Lillehammer Art Museum and Lillehammer Cinema Expansion” Lillehammer, Norway
With the addition to the Museum of the new exhibition hall, Weidemannsalen, this second Snøhetta-designed expansion connects the two existing institutions. The expansion also includes two theaters and an interior renovation to the Lillehammer Cinema. “The key concept was to bring back the foyer as an extension of the plaza in front of the Cinema, creating a stronger connection between the city and the foyer, as Viksjø originally had imagined it. With this, Odd Tandbergs wall art in the foyer is again part of the city.
The concept for the expansion of the Museum came from the idea of art hovering above a transparent base. A children’s workshop, with floor-to-ceiling windows, is located at ground level beneath the cantilevered hall. The hall is wrapped in a dynamic metal façade made from driven, highly polished stainless steel. The striking metallic wrapping reflects the surrounding context and changes its appearance with the light.
The second story gallery houses the works of Lillehammer-based artist Jakob Weidemann (1923-2001). The facade, created by late Norwegian artist Bård Breivik (1948-2016), is conceptually rooted in the sculptural idea of a shooting star, a dramatic symbol of the importance of Weidemann’s contribution to Norwegian painting.
Two new auditoriums were added to the Lillehammer Cinema and its existing circulation space was renovated. One auditorium is integrated in the existing building structure, and the second is located below the art garden, between the two existing buildings.
For the recent expansion, it has been important to again enhance these connecting spaces, bringing the three volumes together in one complete project.”
