Portals of Light

The exterior view of the Städel Museum extension and its convex-shaped green roof is perforated by a grid of 195 porthole skylights.

The skylights bring natural light into the subterranean exhibition space.

Above ground, a new entry foyer and stair leads down to the new exhibition space.

The new entry stair, with its sculptural form, is as much a piece of artwork as the other objects on display. LED spotlights in a semi-recessed ceiling slot illuminate the mixed media on display.
