This September Ordrupgaard will be laying the foundation for a new underground annex drawn by the famous Norwegian architects Snöhetta. Himmlehaven is intended to safeguard the museums invaluable French collection for future generations.
At Ordrupgaard we are already very excited for the completio of Himmelhaven in 2019. In the construction period of approximately two years, Ordrupgaard and Finn Juhl’s House will be closed, but the Art Park will remain open with exciting activities for the museum’s guests. In order to accommodate our many loyal guests we will extend memberships until the end of the building period – free of charge.
If you have recently renewed your card or become a member AFTER the September 1. 2016 your membership will be extended by all of the months that will be missed due to construction. For example if you became a member on 1.March 2017 your membership will be extended by the seven months you’ll be missing plus the entire building period. Membership cards that were purchased AFTER the 1st of May 2017 cannot be refunded but will instead be extended by the entire missed time period.
In this way you are not losing anything as a member, but will in turn be able to lean back and look forward to the opening of a new and even more exciting Ordrupgaard! As soon as Himmelhaven is complete we will send out invitations to a grand opening – for members of Club Ordrupgaard ONLY.
Follow along at ordrupgaard.dk or find us on Facebook if you want to be updated on the progress of the new building and upcoming projects. We will also be creating an info-space on Ordrupgaard’s website, which will be updated on a regular basis through the entire construction period, where you will be able to find answers to any questions regarding the building process.
