Revitalisation of the Auditorium Building on the UW Main Campus

The Auditorium Building is located on the Main Campus of the University of Warsaw at 26/28 Krakowskie Przedmieście Street. Revitalisation will involve the renovation of the building's interiors as well as its façade, adaptation of the basement area for the needs of the Faculty, elimination of the boiler room and preparation of the connection to the existing central heating network, adjustment of the loft along with the lighting installation, replacement of the existing installations accompanied by equipping it with the audio-visual system, mechanical ventilation and air conditioning installation, and tidying the area surrounding the building. The authors of the design decided to restore the classical elements of the original outer appearance of the building and the initial functional layout of its interior with two staircases in the corners of the building and the auditorium in the central part of the ground floor. The return to the original classical form as well as restoring the mirror symmetry of the Collegium Historicum are also a return to the urban conception existing previously. The liquidation of all the subsequent annexes from the west side enables to regain the initial view of the buildings of the Visitation Sisters. In the northern part, the FJPS Library has been located on four floors (including the basement).

The remaining area is intended for:
- offices of the Dean and Vice-Deans,
- headquarters of the Institute of European Studies,
- rooms for researchers,
- publishing house of the Faculty,
- seminar rooms and conference centre facilities,
- guest rooms (at the attic),
- area for the Faculty administration,
- archive.

General information:
Built-up area before the reconstruction – 1,121.0 m2
Built-up area after the reconstruction – 996.0 m2
Area of the building before the reconstruction – 3,853.4 m2
Area of the building after the reconstruction – 3,950.9 m2
Cubic capacity after the reconstruction – 18,250.0 m3
