Extensive conversion and refurbishment works had dispelled the collection of the New Gallery (Neue Galerie) in Kassel to the storage for five years. In November 2011, it has returned to its home at Schöne Aussicht (Splendid View) above the Karlsaue. The art collection now presents itself in a completely modernized  building with extensive space and in a new light.

Its particular quality of perception is ensured by an elevated daylight intake in the building, while an automatic lighting control system permanently adjusts the artificial lighting level to the amount of daylight. The daylight intake through the windows and façade elements has been subtly influenced by the selection of differently transmitting glazings. Hereby, the daylight quantities in the interior spaces can be adjusted according to their location and a continuous lighting level is achieved.

The architecture integrated lighting elements support the uncluttered design of the exhibition spaces.
