Fuglsang Kunstmuseum, Lolland, Denmark, by Tony Fretton Architects

The art gallery on the island of Lolland is part of a long-term Danish programme to relocate cultural facilities to rural areas. It is clad in white brick

Judges’ comments ‘The client’s well-thought-out brief demanded an approachable, domestic-scale gallery which nonetheless had presence. This, Fretton achieves hands-down. It is well-constructed and detailed, with nods to architectural history. It feels as if it could have been built in any decade since the 1920s.’
