Renovation of the Priest’s House (17th century)

Best Implemented Restoration / Reconstruction Project

About the project
The renovation project is based on the thorough research study performed. The designers wanted to keep as much original as possible and restore this memorial’s layout. The building was upgraded with engineering utilities, and thanks to the smart technological solutions it can now be used as the museum and exhibition center.
Structures, partitions, elements, finishing materials added late in the 19th century were removed, as they defaced this listed facility, whereas original pieces were carefully restored – floatstone floors, stone masonry and vault ceilings, intramural stairs, hearth foundations), and some of the ruined elements were restored in compliance with the similar ones (like window and door assemblies, window shutters, and wall lining).
