From the architect. As the construction of the sports hall was financed by a small village with a limited budget, the structure of the hall is very simple and undemanding. Its architectural design uses simple expressional means. Besides the position of the grey panels on the façade and the colour design of the interior, the basic idea is a "numeral" motif where individual numbers are interconnected with sports symbols.

The colourfulness of the hall is also given by the layout of the interior. Separate units such as sportsmen's locker rooms, corridors, muscle-conditioning gym are of different colours than the spaces intended for the spectators. As the decoration of the interior (floors, walls and ceilings) is also very simple, the hall resembles an austere spatial unit-built structure.
