Low-energy Sports Hall Mengeš

The new sports hall is located directly next to Mengeš Primary School. To the east of the intended construction site flows the river Pšata while the entire area is characterized by extensive green park-like and recreation areas. It was these exceptional qualities of the surroundings that were the main drivers in the placement of the building and the design of the hall itself. The main entrance into the building is located on its northern side. It is defined by two offset walls and an access ramp. From the entrance hall, where a ticket shop is located, there is direct access to the stands and basements. At the basement level, there are, in addition to the main hall with three training spaces, also changing rooms for participants and referees, as well as technical rooms. The connection between the hall and the elementary school was deliberately made with an underground connecting tract to preserve the maximum openness and transition of the outdoor space. The studio wanted to implement a responsible approach to sustainable construction. Not only through energy efficiency but also through the selection of the materials. They chose wood as the primary structural material.
