Robert Gutowski Architects designed the SZEM Museum Collection Storage in Székesfehérvár, Hungary.
This project aims to showcase a building where the valuable documents and books of the museum’s archives and library – and its contemporary art collection – can be stored and displayed in a modern environment.
The SZEM Museum Collection Storage was opened in 2021 in Székesfehérvár, one of Hungary’s most important historical cities – a former royal seat that has played an important role in the history of Hungary.
Integrating the newly excavated medieval castle wall, the contemporary building stands as a kind of guardian of and gate to the city centre.
In addition, the SZEM Museum Collection Storage acts as a repository for the museum’s archives and library, a lapidary of medieval stones, a workshop space and a thriving visitor centre.
