The reconstruction involves a well-known older building from 1892, of great historical value, as well as neighboring courtyards.
The ”Culture arena” is the heart of the building. The old auction hall has eight meter ceiling height, and is the most elaborately detailed. It has a lobby, lounge, and restrooms, and can be used for banquets, art shows or concerts.
Walls and woodwork have been restored and painted. A modern color scheme creates contrasts between old and new. Vaults were opened to create new views over the beautiful auction hall. Old wooden floors were kept and treated with lye. Old high windows were given sound insulating glass additions.
