Nový Knín, a town with a farmyard whose centre is formed by a baroque granary from the 17th century. The town bought the granary in order to create a ceremony hall and a new museum of gold.
The reconstruction of the three-storey granary with a double basement is modern in spirit, but with minimal interventions in the historical structures. The new elements are separated from the already existing ones, both structurally and materially. Corten is used in the details of the staircase, connecting spaces horizontally and vertically. The side wings of the ground floor are connected by milk glass; it is used as a dividing structure (registry office and cafe) or as a counter top (premises of the ceremony hall and cafe).
