WEST GATE, SOFIA MUNICIPALITY BUILDING, SOFIA

In order for this important symbol, namely the Gate to the West, to live again in the modern city, it is necessary to give it a new modern function so that it can be integrated into the surrounding urban environment. This is precisely why we decided to draw up a new building project for a metropolitan municipality right next to the archaeological park and create an archaeological reserve with tendencies to expand it in the future and eventually be bound by the rest of the ancient Serdika.

The appearance of the building symbolically shows the development of Sofia from antiquity to the present day, even making a material association with the building blocks used in the period.
