Antwerp’s town council organized an international architecture competition for the design of a new city museum. Neutelings Riedijk Architects’ 'Stapelhuis’ design was selected by the jury am as the winning concept for MAS | Museum Aan de Stroom.

The solution

When designing the new museum repository, the conservator opt for a museum storage with public access. This has resulted in installing a Constructor  Compactus® Double Decker mobile storage system to make optimum use of the available space. Restricted areas have been created and the collection is protected with wire-netting and glass walls. With installing this mobile storage system, the irreplaceable museum collection is stored clear and safe.
