The museum, originally located in the Hôtel de Caumont, has now been extended to include the Hôtel Montfaucon, as a result its exhibition area will be doubled.
This new complex adds to the coherence and benefits of having two buildings by linking all of the floors whilst maintaining the environmental conditions necessary for the conservation of the artworks.
The new Lambert Collection museum stands out through its combination of multiple geometric and environmental spaces. The complex includes huge naturally-lit galleries with traditional architecture alongside artificially-lit abstract galleries in the «white cube» style of major modern museums.
A certain number of the exhibition rooms have been constructed specifically «around» certain works in the Collection which would be otherwise impossible to present in the museum’s existing architectural spaces. The museum’s various galleries provide a large variety of environments and spatial qualities and can receive a large variety of works in different media: video-art, photography, sculpture, installations, paintings, etc.
This new museum can now exhibit works in spaces that provide the correct lighting and humidity conditions whilst alternating or combining adjustable natural and artificial lighting.
