3LHD - Sports/City Hall

The Sports/City Hall in Bale, Croatia by 3LHD has an amazing interplay of surface vs. volume in the stone facade, giving the project both a heavy and light appearance. By day, the shadow cast at the upturned corner conceals the thiness of the stone, while at night, the interior lights extend through the facade to the thin edge of the stone surface.

  1. What a fantastic building. It's great that cities around the world are starting to put an emphasis on innovative architecture for their sports & rec facilities. Thanks for sharing.
