Arken Museum Ishoj, Denmark
The museum does not have one continuous shape, but rather consists of a number of linked building components. Large, open spaces, followed by small, closed ones create dramatic transitions. The imagery of the whole design concept bears comparison with a ship.
The Arken museum is an example of architecture that is full of contrasts. The exterior of the building is derived directly from the surrounding nature. For the interior, by contrast, oblique angles meet high ceilings, metal stairways and smooth walls.
The GROHE fittings ensure a high standard and timeless elegance is maintained in the bathroom facilities and the kitchen. For the wall-mounted basin fittings, the GROHE Allure and Europlus E infra-red electronics provide touch-free technology with the most sophisticated of designs. The integrated GROHE EcoJoy® technology stands for water in ecological perfection with a reduced rate of consumption
