Recognized internationally for recovering the original building to make it a contemporary work, the architects made it possible for the museum to reopen by providing a museum as well as a place to spread knowledge and create thought.

Also designed for the new museum is its extension with a new wing, under Mount Urgull along the seashore, intended to house the new cultural and commercial uses along with optimize accessibility for the public and the collections.

The visual impact of the modern construction has been minimized thanks to the architects being able to work closely with artists Leopoldo Ferrán and Agustina Otero who have created a semi-plant wall covering the building with perforated steel sheets.
