The primary characteristic of the design of Zamet Centre is the integration of a big work project into the urban structure of this part of the town of Rijeka, with the objective of minimizing disruption and to evaluate its given urban conditions – unleveled terrain, the pedestrian link in a north-south direction, the quality plateau in front of the primary school, the park zone, placing the program in the centre of Zamet at the intersection of communications.
The joint conceptual and design element of the handball hall and the Zamet Centre are ‘ribbons’ stretching in a north-south direction, simultaneously functioning as an architectural design element of the objects and as a zoning element which forms a public square and a link between the north – park-school and the south – the street. One third of the hall’s volume is built into the terrain, and the building with its public and service facilities has been completely integrated into the terrain, i.e. it creates it with its ‘ribbons’.
