The midpart of the building contains all technical and support functions, as well as the main entrance. In this way, circulation and area efficiency are optimized whereas the two large training functions share a common area between them.


The building load bearing system mainly consists of CLT and glulam structures. The façades are a combination of timber cladding and glulam lamellas. 

The Sports hall also acts as the campus’s power generator with solar panels covering the whole roof area generating up to 108.000 kWh per year.
