A new frame-structured 5×20 meters building was constructed in between two existing brick buildings.
This allowed for the interiors to be open for viewing from the street.
Erected in 4 weeks the building was constructed with metal structures prepared beforehand.
Both sides of the facade were paneled with natural ash tree glued boards.
As a result of the construction of the new building and the reconstruction of the old one a floor was removed and wholesome open space was obtained.
Additional functions: cinema screen, stage, music & light controls, conference room.
Project’s idea: creation of conditions for small concerts, presentations, children’s performances, and other informal communication.
