Erik Møller Arkitekter has been commissioned to modernize Alvar Aalto’s white marble Kunsten Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. As reported by BDOnline, the £14 million renovation will restore parts of the listed museum, as well as transform the building’s basement into a new 600 square meter exhibition space.

Erik Møller Arkitekter’s Trine Neble elaborated, stating: “We want to maintain Aalto and Baruël’s architectural vision for the building, both inside and out. That means that all surfaces and details will be retained or recycled, wherever possible. On one hand, it is cheaper and more sustainable to reuse existing resources. On the other hand, the minimal extension will leave the listed building as it was originally conceived.”

Work is scheduled to being in June. Completion is slated for 2015.
