First of all, this designing issue was related to a correction of the functional and spatial layout of the interiors as well as the modernization of the façade of the existing building of the backup facility of the Small Audience Chamber at the Old Theatre in Kraków. This object was transformed into a layout of two quadratic prisms, arranged one above the other, with different character of surface finishing as well as dissimilar colours. The upper body was to be finished with plaster in the light colour of mixed white; the lower body – covered with cut-drawn net, plated with zinc, extended on the subconstruction. The net was designed to act as mechanical protection and the support frame for evergreen climbing plants which would make "living" green walls of the object in the future.
