The location of the new handball centre is in the area of a sports-recreational character with a tradition of building several sports facilities gathered around central football stadiums and the Maksimir Forest Park. The angular position along the city avenues enables the potential creation of a new landmark. The planned location represents the last free and urbanized unfinished space in the wider area.

The new sports facility has the potential to change the character of the wider area area around the transport junction, and from the access square and create a center of gravity surrounding pedestrian surfaces. The requirements of the sports arena with a large number of seating for visitors are directly materialized through the exploration of the auditorium. The standings as a specific element of the arena, and their oblique transmission of forces, are conditioned by constructive elements formed as laterals and romboid elements of constructions, X-pillars.
Demanding and specific program of sports arena on a relatively small plot is solved by grouping of open and enclosed spaces into clear units of square, park and building.
