MQ Sopron

The concept of the Museum Quarter Sopron aims to connect three Main Square buildings- Fabricius House, Tábornok House, Stornó House – which have been built together but have been operating separately. The three buildings have a grown spatial structure, from ancient, medieval and baroque historical layers to the reconstruction in the spirit of the 20th century’s Venetian Charter. The studio’s concept is to link the labyrinth-like substructures while preserving the individual character of the buildings and their independent discoverability. To reinterpret the hanging garden of the castle wall as a public urban space and create a connection between the three houses reaching the prominent Fire Tower through the garden – thus creating Sopron’s most important museum unit. In addition, an important aim was to create a reception area exceeding its role, presenting the museum as a cultural centre. The newly created central reception area is located in the covered inner courtyard of the Tábornok House.
