The Architects Have Worked with Three Basic Elements

The architects have worked with three basic elements,  one for each level of the building.  In order to distinguish the modern interventions from the historic masonry structure:  Glass on steel beams for roofing,  Corten steel for staircases and footbridges,  and finally,  polished concrete for ground floor paths.  The insertion of sandblasted glass roofs swathes the Helfštýn Castle chambers with softly diffused daylight complimenting the exhibition displays.  The Helfštýn Castle allowing visitors to perceive the historic interiors in more detail.  In contrast,  clear glass was used for the chapel roof as a symbol of the heavens looming above.  Zigzagging along and through the masonry walls,  the Corten steel footbridges and staircases create a distinct circulation network.  That gradually guides visitors from the ground floor exhibition spaces all the way up to the top of the structure.  Where the former ramparts now serve as viewing terraces.

The Choice of Hefaiston Blacksmith Workshop

The choice of Hefaiston blacksmith workshop;  The choice of Corten steel,  a copper chromium alloy steel with one of highest levels of resistance to atmospheric weathering.  Chosen or both for practical and aesthetic reasons,  the alloy corrodes it will slowly match the hue of masonry walls.  The material also references the Hefaiston blacksmith workshop, an annual gathering of blacksmiths at Helfštýn Castle.  That is considered one of the most important events of artist blacksmiths in the world.  Corten steel profiles have also been used to delineate the concrete pavement on the Helfštýn Castle ground floor.  With the gaps between them and the masonry walls filled with gravel,  which beautifully ties in the different textures.  Further exemplifies the Helfštýn Castle masterful interlacing of old and new.
