The City of Bratislava and the Metropolitan Institute of Bratislava have the intention to restore the original function of the Grössling Bath and complete it with new forms of cultural-community activities and thus open the space to the public. 

In addition to the renovation of the bath section, the competition brief asked to move part of the City Library into the separate area of the object and thus create a public institution which will be accessible to everyone. The branch of the City Library should offer a residence programme for artists that will welcome writers and translators. A new café should become an open space with the kids zone and a reading space of the daily press and the latest publications. The competition also includes the renovation of public spaces, the surrounding area of the building and creating a park on Medená street.
