Kode 1

Address: Nordahl Bruns gate 9, 5014 Bergen.

KODE 1, formerly called Permanenten, is KODE’s building for fine craft and design. In the last two years, this building from 1896 has undergone comprehensive rehabilitation: both the building and the collections are more accessible to the public.

For the opening on 23 May, the exhibition 
Sølvskatten (The Silver Treasure) – KODE’s permanent exhibition of silver and gold objects produced in Bergen – will reopen to the public. So also the Singer Collection, which consists of European and Asiatic antiques, paintings and works by Old Masters. The building will also have a new museum shop focusing on design and interior architecture, a new restaurant, a new education room for children, and a combined conference-and-banquet hall. Later in 2017, the China Collection and new exhibitions of fine craft and design will open.

Henry Bucher was the architect of this museum venue and it opened in 1896.
