LWL Museum, Münster (GER)

Breath-taking insight and view with TG-THERM®sun

The reconstruction of the LWL-Museum for art and culture is completed after 5 years building period. Therewith the museum increases its exhibition area by 1,800 square meters to a total of 7,500 square meters. The LWL-Museum for art and culture is the central art museum of Westphalia. After some years of construction it will reopen its doors in September 2014.

The modern reconstruction offers a lot of halos and a large bright entrance hall. Windows measured up to 3,058 × 5,835 mm provide visitors a completely new perspective between the museums building and its surrounding.

The large windows which extend over two floors on three sides let the museum appear open and welcoming. So, visitors have an unique view and passengers interesting insights. In order to avoid that interiors over-heat due to incoming sunlight, architects decided for solar control insulated glazing TG-THERM®sun of the house Thiele Glas. This combination of physical properties saves energy and makes an active contribution to climate protection.

‘Now opens the museum with beautiful large windows on three sides’ said museums director Dr. Hermann Arnold.
