The access to the building is provided by an external bridge. It is possible to bring equipment to the storage area directly from the outside. The building has been designed to operate self-sufficiently or with a proper staff. It was designed with zoning into three functional sections on three floors: the ground floor (technical and storage), 1st floor (living area, kitchen, dining room), 2nd floor (small bedrooms for several people). This arrangement answers to three levels of possible settlings:
– the first – just entering, buying or repairing the equipment, services, information.
– the second – leaving the equipment on the ground floor and going to the second floor to rest and eat
– the third – staying for longer eg. due to bad weather conditions – bedrooms on the third floor
The natural heat circulation in the building makes the highest floor (bedrooms) the warmest. Moreover, to prevent heat loss, there is a possibility to close the zones through a separate staircase.
