The exhibition project aims to offer a suitable lapidarium facility for valuable stone artefacts owned by the Museum of the Brno Region. The project includes the tour route design and the placement of individual exhibits on aesthetically and technically suitable plinths. The design also features lighting for spaces and exhibits. Given the fluctuating air and ground humidity, the tour route is designed to safely accommodate the movement of groups of visitors. Spatial distribution into three vertical levels is achieved by means of staircases utilizing materials and aesthetics corresponding to the space. The austere form of the exhibition furnishings, their mechanical resistance and variability, achieved while maintaining the aesthetic value of both exhibition spaces and exhibits, is a key criterion for the development of the final form of a unique long-term exhibition.

In terms of content, the project focuses on spatial layout modifications without impacting existing structures and the technical sections of the chateau building. Conceived as follow-up to the ongoing renovation of the chateau, the project takes into consideration previously developed and approved construction documentation.
Project components:
- metal exhibition furniture including platforms, plinths and stands. Information and presentation panel structures, including the graphical form of texts and drawings illustrating the mutual context of exhibited elements
- levelling and connecting staircase structures placed between the individual exhibition areas
- metal walkway structures facilitating visitor movement
- utilization of adequate spatial and exhibition lighting
