Situated in Rijeka’s Zamet quarter, the new Zamet Centre hosts various facilities: sports hall with a maximum of 2380 seats, local community office, city library, commercial and service facilities and a garage. 

One third of the sports hall’s volume is cut into the ground, and other public spaces fit into the surrounding landscape. The main architectural element of the centre are ‘ribbons’ stretching in a north-south direction, functioning at the same time as an architectural design element and as a zoning element which forms a public square and a link between the park on the north and school and B. Vidas street on the south.

The ribbon-like stripes were inspired by “gromača”, a type of rock specific to Rijeka, which the centre artificially reinterprets by colour and shape. Stripes are covered with 51.000 ceramic tiles designed by 3LHD and manufactured specially for the centre. Steel girders with a 55 meter span and different heights enable the natural light illumination of the sports hall. 

The hall has been designed according to latest world sports standards. The concept of the hall is based on space flexibility. The field is 46 x 44 meters in size, for two handball courts. 

The hall contains all the supporting facilities for professional training and competition, and the auditorium, designed as a system of telescopic stands, enables the transformation for everyday use as well as for other activities. Interior materials — wood and acoustic panels suggest that the hall is a large living room for athletes. The main access to the hall and other facilities is located west, from the public square and the underground garage.
