description: 

The conversion project of a former military building into a local school of drama follows the concept of changing the function of today’s spaces without radical intervention or redevelopment which would have changed the architectural face of the building. The school of drama does not need luxury and perfect finishing. We believe it would be used for experimental student projects and the object should need its own spirit of history. The project follows the general requirements for high passive house standards with low energy consumption and aims to follow the trend for the year 2020 ‘Zero Net Energy’ when buildings will consume only as much energy as they will produce.
