The program is solved in three levels. The main floor holds the assembly halls and the kitchen, on the second floor are the offices and a restaurant with its private kitchen for daily service. The garage is at the underground level with the store rooms.
The structure is solved with a three-dimensional mesh, which is rigid due to the compact stairs and services volumes. This kind of structure solves 22 meters length of spam without columns.
