The newer components were again dismantled to obtain the original, spacious structure. The extant historical components were protected and preserved during the 2-year renovation period. Necessary new components are clearly visible, but in harmony with the historic ambience. In a simple, solid design and consisted equitable selection of materials value was placed. The façade is reconstructed with the ancient plastering and ornaments.
