Fuglsang Kunstmuseum was designed by the English architect Tony Fretton (1945), who runs his drawing office Tony Fretton Architects Ltd. from London and is also a professor of the architecture course at the Delft Technical University in The Netherlands. In the Danish context Fretton is also known as the architect behind the Tietgens Ærgrelse ("Tietgen's Vexation") project in Copenhagen, which like the museum has been created with local assistance from the Danish drawing office BBP arkitekter.
