“Bezisten” of the time…
The project is located in the city of Yambol, Bulgaria. “Bezistena” is perhaps the most characteristic monument of the city of Yambol. It was built in 1509 on the model of similar Ottoman properties in the European part of the empire. The hall has unique acoustics and can be used for various cultural events such as concerts, performances, etc. The reconstruction of the building has been turned into a museum about the past, present and future of the city of Yambol. The project also includes a concert area, cafe, bookstore, souvenir shop and other functional areas.
The main idea of our design is to keep the intellectual heritage of the building that is why we took an approach to maximize the usage of glass materials in the project.
