Dezeen Debate features "an intelligent re-use of an industrial structure"

The Kunstsilo art gallery in southern Norway is located in a converted 1930s grain silo and was designed by Barcelona’s Mestres Wåge Arquitectes, BAX, and Mendoza Partida.

The aim for Kunstsilo was to preserve and celebrate the architecture of the former grain store, completed by Norwegian functionalist architects Arne Korsmo and Sverre Aasland in 1935.

Commenters praised the conversion, labelling it “an intelligent and quite positive re-use of an industrial structure,” while another remarked, “Love a good adaptive reuse project.”
