The proposal is influenced by the surrounding flatness of the terrain, where it’s easy to bicycle. By the friendly atmosphere of the nearby town. By the slow flow of Elbe River and by the plot location in the woods. The concept is based on a low single storey building, roofed with an overlapping cantilever and the wooden mass of the elevated hall. The cantilever delimitates the low part of the building what brings a small-scale friendly atmosphere. The high wooden lantern is peaking over the lower part. The big windows illuminating the interior refer to the Czech tradition of Sokol sports halls with the optimistic spirit in the state-founding interwar period.

The layout plan is based on a simple decision to place the whole program on one floor. Everything is easily accessible while enabling a sufficient control and overview for the receptionist desk.

The entrance hall flows into a buffet. It’s possible to connect or divide the two spaces if necessary. Dressing rooms, toilets and technical rooms follows in this lower part of the building. Entrances to the playing field are separated for visitors and players.
