The client's wish was to modify the existing reception areas to meet current technological and spatial needs. The task of the entrance lobby is not only to welcome the visitor, but also to take him through the whole complex.

The interior concept works with contrasting colors separating the spaces depending on the purpose and movement of the visitor. Dark colors close the individual functional zones and strong light lines, on the other hand, connect and open the space.

The entrance area is dominated by a blue bay reception with a snow-white artificial stone counter. All technologies are stored in several levels in the counter and shelves for easy operation and maintenance.

The walls and ceiling are highlighted not only in color, but also by slats, which optically connect the entire reception area. Vivid colors highlight the visitor's movement around the building.

The additional copper color on the lights and seating enhances the welcoming atmosphere of the reception. The blue slats and lights correspond in size and create graphs and figures on the walls and ceiling which is typical of the banking institutions located in the building.

Thanks to an intensive dialogue with the client, the landlord and the staff, the originally dark entrance has become a lively representative reception, which proves that the design can be playful, beautiful, and yet functional.

The technical solution of the interior was significantly influenced by strict requirements for fire safety with the need to maintain the rules for protected escape routes. The used slats are made of non-combustible board materials and the accessories and seating furniture are made of metal.
