Hans Melchers, new owner of the Dutch paintings from the DS Art collection, commissioned Amsterdam based Hans van Heeswijk Architects to design MORE, the new Museum for Dutch Modern Realism. The museum is located in the heart of Gorssel, a picturesque village in the east of The Netherlands. Construction has started in the spring of 2013 and the museum opened 2 June 2015.


The museum is housed in the former town hall of Gorssel. This building has undergone a transformation with new wings for galleries behind the existing building. The monument, built in 1914, is renovated and now houses the brasserie and auditorium. The sections from the 1980s are replaced by the new galleries. The stone facade is a mixture of French limestone (Beauval and Beaunotte). The two floors contain seven art galleries with strategic vistas to the park setting. Besides exhibiting the permanent collection, the museum also houses spaces for temporary exhibitions.
