The work on the castle in Velké Opatovice and its SUCCESSFUL REALISATION brought a project of reconstruction of the interiors of Kačina castle, which is the most beautiful pearl of Empire style architecture in the Czech Republic. The reconstruction of interiors concerned itself with for new utilization in one part of the castle while an exposition about Czech countryside life was to be installed in the other part. We managed to preserve graceful, colourful details of the original wall coverings, floors, and ceilings in the interior, so our intervention remained invisible. We developed completely transparent furniture especially for these interiors, which would not interfere with the original valuable architectonic features.1The Kačina castle was brought back to life with the exhibition, a rich program of the Czech countryside life. The exposition in Mladá Boleslav castle as well as a reconstruction and new utilization of Miroslav castle are being prepared.
