Total Croatia News

The City of Split has published a tender for a feasibility study and cost analysis of the concert hall project and the refurbishment of the Croatian Hall in Toničićeva ulica. The total value of this project is 20 million kuna.

The feasibility study is the last step before contractors are selected, meaning that all the requirements for funds from the Ministry of Culture and the EU are then met.

According to deputy mayor Goran Kovačević, if everything goes according to plan, all contractors should be selected by the end of September so actual works on the building will commence in October, and since there is a possibility that some funds from the Ministry and EU will become available, the city will have complete documentation necessary for applications.

This extensive renovation includes the refurbishment of the entire building which holds a status of a protected cultural heritage. On the first floor, along with the hall, a foyer will be constructed which will house a cafe and the coat room. Third and fourth floor will contain rehearsal halls for the City Puppet Theatre and City Youth Theatre.

The concert hall will have 230 seats with the balcony, and it will primarily satisfy the needs of chamber music fans. It will also be a suitable venue for special city assembly, small congresses and incentives and other formal events.

Adaptation and reconstruction of this building will be done in accordance with t original designs by Kamil Tončić dating back to 1908 and with the help of photo documents from that era.
