Sunday Projects :: Zamet Centre
Firm: Studio 3LHD
Project Location: Rijeka, HR

Stripes are covered with 51.000 ceramic tiles designed by 3LHD and manufactured specially for the centre. Steel girders of 55 meters span and different heights enable the natural light illumination of the sports hall...
