The brief was for the erection of a flexible 2-storey workshop with instruction and changing rooms. It was designed as a reinforced concrete skeleton structure, with the sturdy instruction and changing room wing on the side acting as bracing. The steep slope of the land presented particular planning challenges, in particular with regard to access, deliveries and lighting for the lower storey.
So as to reduce operations the ambient temperature in the premises is controlled by thermally active ceilings. Heating is sourced from the block-type thermal power station that supplies the entire complex. The transparent facades of the halls are made of upright Profilit glass with extended metal inlays, which also serves as a sun screen.
