Legia Warsaw centre in Grodzisk Mazowiecki
Whilst developing consecutive stages of the project we often reminded ourselves that were designing a building which was to serve as a temporary home for young players and their coaches. Our goal was to design functional well-connected spaces, that are user-friendly and filled with light. We also wanted the building’s image to represent the fighting spirit of Legia Warsaw.
One of the challenges was to design a functional layout of the main building, bearing in mind a very wide application program (which has been detailed only during the design process) and very specific spatial relationships between the different functional zones.
