Work on the project of a multifunctional community center in the city of Presov was carried out as part of the competition, and our proposed solution was primarily focused on the task of renovating the historic part of the city with respect for the artistic values of the past era. But at the same time we did not flirt with the city and try to inscribe in its features something "old-fashioned", and boldly invited him to make friends with the new, modern architecture, with its incorrect and bold, but simple and clear forms and materials. However, the size of the building (the mall is really small) allowed to place accents in such a way that all this bold novelty is compositionally concentrated, has clear boundaries, as if "knows its place" and does not argue with the solid surrounding buildings.
