The silhouette of Bale is dominated by a church very typical of the North Adriatic area and an atypical Renaissance palace. Together with traditional houses they form the context of the new sports hall by 3LHD studio. The current harmony could easily be jeopardized, which is why this latest addition to the composition had to be inserted with great care. The size of the hall was determined by the dimensions of the basketball court. However, the architects manipulated the dimensions in relation to the context by partially burying the hall. The act of digging the soil, evoking entrenched medieval castles, is emphasized by an earthen embankment on the outer sides of the composition. On the town-facing side, light penetrates the hall through a large cut-out level with the square. This opening turns the corner and converges with the embankment in a single point. The building is set off from the surrounding public space by a narrow belt of smooth concrete.
