Architect: Beh­nisch Architekten, Stuttgart

The OZEANEUM Oceanographic Museum is located on the city’s his­toric waterfront immedia­tely adja­cent to the his­toric centre which has been clas­si­fied as a UNESCO World Heri­tage Site.
It is conce­ived as an open house that can be "flooded" from all sides by day­light and visi­tors, in a manner akin to that of water swir­ling around stones on the seabed. Every angle leads to new visual rela­ti­onships between the "stones", which lends the museum its unmist­akable iden­tity and makes a unique con­t­ribu­tion to the Stralsund skyline.

The layout of the museum leads visi­tors to the museum on a spec­ta­cular journey of disco­very through and between the "stones". Every "stone", or building ele­ment, covers a specific exhibi­tion theme. Freely slung rib­bons of steel are remi­nis­cent of sails bil­lowing in the wind. They appear to be as thin as paper, light and elegant, and are neither static nor rigid. The idea of light­ness and airi­ness has been uniquely imple­mented here by Beh­nisch Architekten, a German architectural firm.

GU solu­tion: manual and automati­cally locking panic locks for narrow stile, timber and steel doors
