During 2008, heritage-listed factories forming part of the former Phönix-Werke industrial complex in Hamburg-Harburg were comprehensively renovated and newly fitted to create exhibition and storage space for the extensive private collection of businessman Harald Falckenberg. A central stair cascade forms the principal spatial intervention, allowing the entirety of the collection to unfurl through 6200m2 across 5 floors. Depot spaces, exhibitions and the permanent collection exist side by side, each accorded equal respect.
