During the reconstruction, we tried to preserve and enhance the best of this old and unique building. The main entrances are organized in the eastern facade. we made a space for the safe movement of cars and pedestrians on the eastern side near the main entrance. the exits are located in the western facade on the opposite side of the building. We followed the existing structure modules while we were dividing spaces inside the existing building to improve connections with existing structures and complex ceiling.

The functional spaces of the building are rationally organized and have optimal circulation. the main exhibition, club and service areas are located on the top floor with access to natural light. mobile partition walls are used to divide space on the top floor, therefore this area can be quickly modified based on the future needs of this building.
