A place for citizens, where they gather and do arts or learn. The building is situated in the city centre, in connection with medieval city walls. The project consists of three main elements: an old building made of bricks, which is converted, a modern building parts and a garden. The first element is a part of traditional, industrial character of Upper Silesia Region. It is called Familok and it used to be a housing for workers of the heavy industry. To save that heritage I designed a conversion – simply adding glass and metal elements, which underscores the character of the building.
