Architects: Staab Architekten GmbH, Berlin

Exhibition designer: hg merz architekten museumsgestalter, Stuttgart


After several years construction, the Richard Wagner Museum - remodeled and extended by Staab Architekten - was reopened on 26 July 2015, just in time for the Bayreuth Festival. The lighting design by Licht Kunst Licht found sensitive solutions to the wide-ranging tasks. While the new extension building's architectural lighting is fully integrated, the luminaires in the historical buildings are additive elements that become part of the vintage interior.

The showcases, along with the entire exhibition arrangement, were designed by HG Merz, and present themselves as contemporary vessels which generate their own light. Even so, the lighting elements visually recede, yet efficiently orchestrate the exhibits.
