The building's location, surrounded with apartment buildings, faces an open green area to the southeast. Entire programme is organized along the edge of the structure: communications and secondary spaces at the back, with offices along the north, west and east elevations. The entrance is devised as a lifted platform incised into primary volume. Inside, a large lobby connects all public functions and functional spaces of Football Union. A circular opening in the lobby ceiling is repeated in all upper floors, thus allowing the flow natural light from the roof down to the ground floor; at the same time, the opening connects all the functional segments of the building into a single system. On the roof, a spacious terrace is arranged in front on the technical spaces.
Consistent with its use, the building diverges from surrounding building types. Its composition follows the dynamic suggested by the activity of football, its skin flows around the whole structure. Floor plan is organized around a single centre = stadium. Various activates emanate from the centre = the field - to the edge. Facades are enveloped into a textile skin, giving the building a monolithic appearance; optionally the skin can serve as information medium. Construction and installation design should ensure minimal sources entropy; using sustainable and local materials, with minimal energy input for maximal effect. Energy of designing process is directed into a concept that should provide a stable building, construction and installation-wise, extensively utilizing internal resources such as use of low-temperature energy systems and energy recuperation for all elements. This way, the building can stimulate energy-friendly behaviour in its users; together with providing them with environment friendly initiatives as bicycle infrastructure and public transport access it establishes a work environment that encourages rational energy use.
