At the heart of the museum you’ll find Family ArkDes – a place where you can relax with your family, play, and have fun.
Meet the Designers

Marcia Harvey Isaksson
Marcia Harvey Isaksson is an interior architect and exhibition designer who founded the studio sqCircle AB in 2012. The studio focuses on creating spatial experiences and experiential spaces, often in museum environments and other public spaces. She also runs Fiberspace, a gallery that has focused fiber and textile art since 2015, with the goal of bringing more textile art into the public space.
Three Design Elements
The space comprises three elements: the Hilly Hangout, the Hideouts, and the Talismans.
The Hilly Hangout is a carpet-covered terraced structure that ascends into the far corner of the room, giving visitors a lofty perch from which to enjoy the outstanding views across the water.
The Hideouts are a group of shelters inspired by clay huts, yurts and igloos, perfect for a quiet moment away from the noise.
To accentuate the generous ceiling height, oversized handcrafted Talismans hang above the space bringing good karma to the room and catching the light with their reflective materials.
