The stone perimeter walls were manually cleaned, and repaired locally. Similarly were repaired brick architraves around the windows. Original openings were barely touched.
The project features a simple design and material solutions. It also keeps clear sense of what used to be original because of potential future more sophisticated remodeling. Essential was investor’s will to save the object which majority of people took for totally destroyed and with absolutely no value. In addition, this building stands in the area that is today considered uninteresting and unimportant thanks to the absence of meaningful social and urban policy.
