Lëtzebuerg City Museum – Extension

The new extension houses the brasserie, whose architecture blends in seamlessly with the surrounding historic structures. The connecting buildings, situated on the north side of the Lëtzebuerg City Museum along Rue Saint-Esprit, are located in one of the oldest residential areas of the capital, within the "second perimeter" of the city, which was built at around the end of the 12th century.

In light of the building's location in Luxembourg City's protected centre, the architectural design of the brasserie grew out of a desire to produce a distinctly modern building that would blend in seamlessly with the existing historical setting. At the same time, the existing building was meticulously renovated and its original historical character restored.

The new structure, which replaces the annex dating from 1934, slightly overhangs the promontory. As such, the buildings on Rue du Saint-Esprit still afford unobstructed views, and the facades and the wall of the old annex along Rue du Saint-Esprit have been maintained.

The new building houses all the vital functional spaces of a brasserie, most notably the food-preparation room and the dining room. Due to the architectural design, the brasserie affords views of the valley from inside without violating the privacy of the occupants of the neighbouring buildings. In the summer, the sliding windows can be opened completely so that the dining room gives directly on to the two large terraces of the outer courtyard.

External facilities

The inner courtyard is meant to be enjoyed by restaurant patrons and is also open to visitors to the city who wish to take in the stunning view. It can be reached directly from the museum. The terrace in front of the new building, and the upper terrace with its view overlooking the valley, are part of the restaurant space.
