CHIZA Architecture Bureau, founded by Chingiz Agharzayev and Zaki Jabiyev, has developed a multifunctional building that follows the same architectural language "deconstruction style" with the Heydar Aliyev Center and Baku Congress Hall in which the proposal will be close to these buildings.

The building consists of three floors and has underground parking, which places 183 cars. The main hall area is 1500 square meters, that can accommodate up to 1100 people. 

The volumes are dressed by porous cooper skin in a repetitive layout in order to achieve lightweight construction. The ceiling high is 12,5 m. This hall can transform from one purpose to another easily. The lighting and decorations can be removed and changed. The project has a form of displaced cubes.

The finishes are perforated copper panels, which are fixed in the way to leave empty spaces between panels and walls.

"Because of lightweight construction of a facade, the building seems airy. The main difficulty of the project is that it was designed on the frame of unfinished building," said CHIZA architectural bureau. 

"In order to create our new project based on the frame of the old building, the full analysis of the existing frame was done taking into consideration construction features," added the firm.

The Baku Banquet Hall is to be a comprehensive facility which will cater to the Baku social and business market.
