The winning team designed a sports hall that enriches the existing location dominated by the bus station.

A large public square was formed between the sports hall and the bus station. However, this public space envelops the future facility and expands to a roof that will also be open to the public in the form of a square with grandstands.

The winning team did not want to build a tall building, but they did aligned with the height of the surrounding buildings. The new sports hall will thus be immersed in the existing architectural heritage.

Rounded shapes

The shape of the paths and green areas is defined by the existing roads and the function of the building itself. Thus, rounded forms of paths with green islands in which they will be planted were obtained trees that will provide an additional sound barrier from strong roads.

The communication is made so that the spectators can quickly access the object but also leave it at the end of the event.

The shape of the object was obtained by raising a double spiral, which created curves on the object.

The shape of the object is obtained by lifting a double spiral which created curves on the building with four floors above ground. The roof covered with wood will be supported by a steel structure around the perimeter of the building, which will make it look like it is floating above the arena.

See what the sports hall in Pristina will look like:
