The new NORR – National Museum will act both as an addition to the existing Jamtli Museum in Östersund, and form a new branch of the Swedish National Museum. The new building will have a large exhibition hall, workshops, offices and café, contributing new amenities and attractions to an already established art centre.
The vision is to create a unique and flexible exhibition hall, which adds a new architectonic layer to the Jamtli museum.
The new building draws inspiration from the context through scale and materials, giving it a respectful approach to its surroundings. A strong connection to the existing Jamtli Museum is created by a logical and functional flow. In turn this creates a common identity, forming a strong and vibrant art centre on both a regional and national level.
