Synergy between collection and landscape

Øm - Museum of Monastic Life
Skanderborg, Denmark 2018
Heritage Museum

The ruin of Øm Monastery is located in a magnificent natural setting between lake Gudenså and Mossø. The museum consists of a ruin forming part of the cultural landscape created by the monks, and a collection of skeletons and artefacts from the excavation of monastery.

Our outset is context specific by carefully placing a new museum as a series of buildings in the landscape. A museum envisioned as a complex that tells the story of the daily life in the monastery while offering experiences in nature. 

Galmstrup Ltd. is commisioned to develop the vision strategy, program and design of the new museum and park in close dialogue with Skanderborg Museum.
