"City salon" uder the Arcade

The artistic composition of the entire unit follows the expression of the image of the city palace– in this case the urban building of the Theatre, which adheres strictly to the hierarchical rules in the space and the symmetrical organization of the building. The archetypal pattern of understanding such typologies basically determines the tripartite division of the building unit to the bottom of the base, as well as the central – prominent part of the building and the upper, roof part. In terms of reminiscence in relation to respecting the existing type of building typology with the new construction, we consciously emphasize the key elements of expression that define the external visual expression of the whole:the existing base of the central unit of the drama,  of the 2 volumes of the outer parts (wings) and of the upper "roof" level, distinguished from the rest by its specific construction logic and integrates the object  together with the whole comprehensive and connected entity).
