The final design is a light, attractive free space, defined by an asymmetric double cone membrane structure. This unusual building is situated at top of the hill, nearby city of Kumanovo. The exposed position provides a wonderful view of 270º for all users, but also a fantastic appearance visible from very far. The functional organization is separated in two main parts. One is the technical block. This part contains kitchen, storage rooms, toilette and rest rooms, and additional spaces for stuff and technical installation. The technical block is a simple cubic shape, well insulated and 'not exposed'. The other part is a main celebration area, with a central positioned entrance. This huge, 600m² free space is covered with an attractive curved white membrane. The space is enclosed by transparent foil side walls. Two asymmetric masts, besides supporting the membrane roof, offer the possibility to organize this free space in many different ways, defining dancing podium, sitting area, music or performance area, etc. The 'Crown element’ is the two cone shaped membrane that defines the whole structure. The membrane provides a perfect diffuse daylight throw-out all the inner space, and a shiny, reflective, glamorous surface for outside impression.
Beside technical improvements, claimed by lab-testing, this material showed an unexpectedly surprising characteristics, during production and installation process as well as in one year exploitation period so far. Dirt behavior, scratch and crack resistance and visual appearance are some of fantastic characteristics that have to be emphasized.
