Set on Track - TVE Sports Centre
This structure is in sharp contrast with the neighbouring scruffy residential buildings built in the 1960s, and had a positive effect on them, whilst becoming an outstanding component of the man-made environment here. The main entrance axis of the two-storey building runs north-east, slightly stepped back from the facade to create a reception zone with an atrium. The wings on the first floor are connected with a ferro-concrete bridge on the first floor, but the cover panel was constructed as an unbroken joint structure. As a result, the huge glass curtain wall makes space friendly and optically open. From the foyer to the ceiling, it is clad in tiny concave cubes and spiced up with a horizontal blue band. Above the reception counter the interior is enhanced with botanical decor, a green wall, which evokes the lawn outside the building. The first storey of the northern building is accessible by a bridge spanning over the foyer. The eastern facade is entirely opened up towards the fields. The southern part of the first floor houses a self-service restaurant-buffet. The gradual design of the grand stand was made of prefab ferroconcrete panels to guarantee the flat geometry.
