After a perennial construction period the LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur in Münster has been re-opened in September. Extended by Staab Architekten through a new construction which is connected with the existing building from 1908, the museum can now display its collection in 51 exhibition spaces. They are flanked by a library, an auditorium, access and relaxation zones as well as a restaurant. The carefully structured lighting concept of Licht Kunst Licht not only offers a flexible exhibition illumination, but also orchestrates the architecture.

It was the lighting designer's aim to develop a lighting concept that measures up to the museum as a multifunctional building but also fulfills the elevated requirements of a display illumination in a contemporary museum's operation. The design focus was not on the luminaire as an object but on the self-evident integration of artificial light into a clear-cut architecture, thus making light palpable, but keeping the light source itself concealed.
