When visitors enter inside, they can perceive a giant hall that is filled with exhibition objects while presenting a continuous movement.

"Project activities lasted about 10 months from which the longest and most complicated step was cleaning up the space from historical garbage," said Geometrix Design describing their project.
"It was found out that the whole building was formed actually from two separate buildings, the facade wall of one had become the interior wall dividing the space into two principal zones: Steel and Acryl."

"We thought out a non-waste composition: each panel was cut according to its template in a curve, one part of the panel satal convex part of the fence, the second part became mirror-concave," said the office.
