Text description provided by the architects. The building plan is determined by the objective of clear spatial arrangement and taking advantage of  the valuable location on the slope. The block of the hall – creating a compact form embedded in the open space – was partly open from the slope side.

The main architectural accent is glazing on the entire height of the climbing wall and the main hall, together with representative stairs leading to the first floor. In this way some interaction is created between the internal and exterior spaces of the hall, which enables people to observe things happening inside. Simultaneously, the edges of the openings, coated in gold colour, formally separate the light interior of the hall from the exterior wall, which is covered with anthracite metal sheet.

The sports field size 44 by 24 metres takes most of the building’s surface area. Beside it there is a cloak-room facility section and entrance to the room with the climbing wall, and an extendable part of the audience space (600 seats). The fixed section of the audience space (400 seats) is located on the first floor of the building with access from the hall on the ground floor.The design provides an option for extension.
