The roof of the hall are composed of three elements connecting such the complex into a unique whole. The portico, the changing room area and the sports hall have roofs with tree different inclinations. That makes this, rather large building, closer to the surrounding houses scale. In addition to the sloping roof the brick facade is another element commonly used in this environment. The portico connects the school and the hall, leading us to the entrance. Locker rooms for the users and rooms for the teachers are located on the ground floor. Above, on the first floor, there is a small spots hall with its own locker rooms. The spectators climb the stairs to a gallery from which they enter the grandstands. Underneath the stands is the storage for gymnastic equipment and the space for the mobile grandstands. The sports hall has a total of 300 seats. The sports hall has dimensions of a handball court, but can be separated into three basketball court sized parts. A large glass wall is facing the north in order to obtain maximum light and minimum sun.
