The new Albertinum includes a redesign of the existing building structure and a re-organization by adding the necessary art depots not inside the inner courtyard, but above. A generous space was created that is now used as a foyer and event space while providing a connecting link for the diverse exhibitions. The exhibition areas display both classic and modern sculptures as well as paintings. The atmosphere ranges from mainly daylit spaces through classic galleries to almost dark depots.  Lighting supports these atmospheres and exhibition requirements, paying attention to integrate into the design without standing out on its own.
