This innovative museum interior in Kassel features a split-level layout that helps carry out the flow of visitors. The museum is situated near a historic park, and its contents feature work from the Brothers Grimm. The museum is also used to thoroughly explain the historical and topographical features of the park. Other exhibits focus on familiar Grimm fairytales and German linguistics.

The layout for the space boasts an open concept and invites guests to explore the exhibits at their own pace. Architects believed that the shape of the land was an important feature to highlight. When constructing the museum, the area's undulations were used as inspiration for the final design. The museum also has a roof landscape that provides picturesque views of Kassel. Also, the tiered layout is centered on the welcoming hall which stretches the entire length of the building.
