Huset no 7

It must be an experience to walk through the house, which is why the whole house must be characterized by changing exhibitions; everything from fine art, sculpture and jewelry. The secret behind a living cultural center is that many different citizens feel ownership and responsibility for the building and create the framework for an easily accessible public center where everyone has the opportunity to put themselves in play or just be.
