The museum

A dynamic profiling of the cultural field can mean quite a lot to an area as well as to a city. With this vision Hjørring Kommune (municipality) in the spring of 1996 arranged an architects competition on conversion of the closed Bechs Klædefabrik (textile mill) into an art museum.

The architects C. F. Møllers Tegnestue won with a project that in a convincing as well as simple way meets a  contemporary cultural institution's multifarious needs - and at the same time it ensures Bechs Klædefabrik as a significant building of value to the history of civilization.

Construction budget: 20 million DKK.
