The majority of the new building is located underground where it connects to the existing building with new space for the lift and staircase. The sloping site towards the sea allowing the building to rise out in the landscape as a "pavilion".

It's always a challenge to add an extension to an existing protected building therefore the new addition is kept simple and sculptural and relates humbly to the context, the historic buildings and the nature. While designing the extension there was a strong focus on texture and materiality in the interior and exterior. The bricks maroon colors ensures that the building blends harmoniously into the nature. The ceramic bricks (Petersen Tegl) can be opened or closed to let light in or out.
