Three organizational devices define this center for sport and interaction. The Cave provides a large space to combine various forms of climbing and bouldering within one space. The Promenade provides a foyer and public route that crosses through the Activity Garden, and connects with the Café and Restaurant. The Exhibition Spiral at the center of the building brings in light for office and sport activities while connecting the various split levels. The Roof Garden provides views towards Mount Vitosha, the Foothills and the Activity Garden. Offices are split between two levels to separate cellular and open studio arrangements. Executive offices are provided with panoramic views over Bulgaria’s capital city, Sofia.
The new Activity Cave is located between four urban and natural landscapes.
A generic urban block crossbred with the impressive Devetashka Cave.
