The Hoogeveen Regional Museum underwent a major internal renovation in 2001, to which new construction was added. B+O Architecture and Urban Design realized a completely new wing behind the existing monumental building. The internal renovation involved the creation of a spacious entrance and reception area.
The main function of the new part is to house temporary exhibitions. The large space can be divided flexibly and the many windows create an abundance of light. The windows also give a view of the exhibited from the outside. Viewed from the main street, the new building is particularly striking because it discreetly blends in with the monumental facade.
