The town planning contexture of the designed district is mostly formed under the influence of the local area natural landscape. The streets and roads network primarily follows the relief and develops non-regular picturesque structure with numerous random directions. While the complex design was in processing the necessity occur in provision of a particular compositional framework that would put under control the whole building architecture. Such framework has been formed out of the environmental context.
The axis parallel to the existing sports complex axis has been chosen as a basic direction. This axis also went through the top of the hill situated near the constriction area.

Being connected angle-wise to each other these two volumes form the street public space in front of the building entrance. This provides for the amphitheatre arrangement and the existing trees protection. The part of the multifunctional sports hall volume forms a console.
