This private museum houses a collection of dried fish maws, also known as swim bladders. One of its striking design features is a visible concrete joist pierced by a wooden beam. The entrance hall is fitted out with oak furniture which, together with the oak staircase, gives the space a sober aesthetics. A painting on the subject of man and fish tempts visitors into the exhibition space which is equipped with museum display cases and a strict lighting design so that the shape and texture of the concave exhibits are accentuated to their advantage.

Statement by the Jury

Not only are the rooms of this private museum aesthetically pleasing, but they also showcase the exhibits very effectively.
