It is being built near the existing sports grounds. Under the tear-shaped shell was made a cascade of two terraces. There are swimming pools on a lower level and basketball and futsal courts on the higher floor. Illuminated by the overhead light, these levels form a single sports platform in an undivided dome space. Creating a roof outline was based on the possible trajectories of the ball. The pattern of triangular windows in the roof-shell thickens closer to the pool area. You can swim out from the freshwater pool located on a lower level (the size of the bath is 26x16 m) out to the pool with artificial saltwater in the open air.
Total area: 8 890 m2
