Second Storey Plan
Second Storey Plan

Taking into account the high Storey of the sports hall, this riverside building volume would be more abrupt, we consider that The sports hall ground is reduced to the underground layer, the green park also extends into the sports hall level to ensure that the sports hall will be  lighting and comfortable, while greatly reducing the amount of body building above ground.

The sloping roof extended to the park ground, so that people can climb the roof of the building, watching the river and the green park. Some area of the sloping roof will be planted with grass, green parks and this building can become a continuous whole.
