The two extensions have been designed with respect for the geometry and the park. The first extension has been created in the space between the original exhibition hall and a newly-built wall shaped like part of a circle. The exhibition area is illuminated by a skylight. The other extension has been built beneath the grassy surface, but reveals itself above ground in the form of several geometric designs: a glass cube and two glass walls. The glass provides a skylight for a large underground exhibition hall. Above ground, the space is utilised for a sculpture courtyard which extends the exhibition possibilities of the location.
