to enable these two large volumes, the simple roof trusses of the building were deconstructed by the architect and built above the new prefabricated wood rib elements. the wooden structure is visible from the inside and, together with the lower wooden bowl, ensures a pleasant room atmosphere. this area can be freely used by the artists. the special quality of daylight for the artists is achieved by frameless glazing in the eaves.

the roof shape of the historic hipped roofs is retained and reinforced in its effect. this way a new functional architecture is possible but also a special contribution to the protection of historical monuments is created. a gallery level can be used either for lectures of the artist classes or as an overview platform, as a place of curiosity, for exhibitions. an extendable white screen immerses the room in a diffused light and is particularly important for the sculptor classes due to the alternating light mood.
