The paper deals with the problem of the acoustic treatment using modern material technology in the modernization of old interiors. On the example of an auditorium with approved acoustics, that was built in 1962 and is located at the Lviv Polytechnic, some important directions in handling this type of object was shown. The acoustic measurements of the room showed, that structures used in the 60s are acoustically proper, but planned renovation should be based on modern technologies.
