This monument stimulates two global attributes; sustainability and human centred design.
The rise of abandoned monuments located in Bulgaria, encouraged the need for re-purposing the monument by introducing adaptive reuse and the use of modern design. Support of sustainable materials and preserving current features of the building to allow a more educated method was vital, assisting the local community with an intergenerational approach of the monument following the communist era. The functions of the space allow for a community-based theme throughout Internal and social gardens. The structure allows for different portals by educating the users as well as benefiting users with disabilities. Aspects within the structure also compliment the café as the Internal gardens generatate a fresh produce cycle.
