To withstand the acting snow loads, the new pavilion at ground level has a conic shape where six triangles have been cut out.

A corridor which leads outside connects the extension with the existing building.

Construction

The walls with varying height between 2.3 and 5.9 m, are made of reinforced concrete and are filled with calcium silicate units.

The walls support a conic roof with a diameter of 29 m which uses the principle of the reciprocal structure with 7 rows. Therefore, no central support is needed.

The reciprocal structure consists of about 1,000 wooden beams with a section of 8 x 23 cm and a length of up to 6 m.
