According to the architect Krzysztof Ingarden the building had to expose three stained glass windows created for the Wawel Cathedral but never before made out of glass. The building is created made of glass and only covered by long and narrow bricks decorated with chestnut tree lives. The bricks cover the light to expose the glasses in the proper way.
