Two massive divisions of the art academy have three entrances on 3 different levels. The ground floor entrance and the garage lead to the waiting hall, which is bridging auditoriums and a concert hall.

Concert hall resides above the parking space in the western wing and its interior is arranged in a way that an audience faces the window.
Upper level entrance is split in two directions: the right one guides the visitor to the viewpoint and the left one - to the cafe and the lounge area, below which, auditoriums are located.
