FRAC Bretagne Museum by Studio Odile Decq

The new building of the FRAC Bretagne museum was designed by the Studio Odile Decq in 2012 and it is located in Zac de Cleunay, Rennes, France offering a daring combination of materials and geometries to create a “brute and sophisticated” aesthetic, as the designers defined it.

The structure features a huge block with a color palette that employs red black and white to create a contrasting and powerful impact with a complex interior geometry that allows a visual connection between the spaces.

The project contains a contemporary art museum as well as functioning as a conservation center and an art library with a conference room and other educational services. The façade is quite simple as a sign of respect for the Nemours art work in front of it but the interior overwhelms you with the vertical void that exposes the entire height of the building making each function evident.
