This building serves not only as an art school for children, but also it creates spaces for cultural activity, various events, and relaxation for residents of the city. The park itself can be divide into thematic zones. Each of them offers different leisure: markets, festivals, sports fields, botanical gardens.
The lobby of the building represents open atrium space, which includes cylindrical elements in the centre with the planting of greenery and trees growing from them. These cylinders are equipped with benches, rubbish bins, and act as recreation and waiting areas. The area around the cylinders is finished with a shock-resistant wooden floor to create the “natural island” effect and highlight the functional area. This technique used due to the desire to overcome the barrier between the outside and inside. The walls finished with wooden panels with a slit perforation, and cotton wool on the backside, which provides good sound absorption. The lobby includes a cafe area, which also separated from the main floor with wooden flooring. The first floor is made of ceramic- granite tiles, as it has a long service life and high wear resistance.
