The building of the new interpretation center was placed in the very center of Ig, among the existing buildings of the public program: the municipal building, post office, primary school, church with parsonage and walls, old granary, complex of the modern Ig center. Its volume is precisely placed in the floor plan and height geometry of the surrounding context and is connected to the existing granary. It embraces the latter in such a way as to preserve the view of it from the accessible east. sides, and together they form the northern facade of the open area of the square.
