The input of modern architecture in historical building is always delicate and serious question. It's the same with Cathedral of St. Nicholas.  The lenght of presbytery is almost as long as main nave and it's a remain from gothic renovation. In such a generic space, we can play with the scale of interior design. I was inspired by stare in vault made of geometrical forms.
