The restaurant supported on 19 m cantilevers, gives a special feature to this architectural unity.

§ The roof of the covered Olympic swimming pool is made of prestressed concrete hyperbolic parabolic shell (roof) 7 cm thick on the rhombus base, with the span over the longer diagonal 107 m and over the shorter 60 m. In the lowest points of the roof shell the inclined columnal "abutments'' are formed witch are interconnected by prestressed concrete tie beams. The building is founded on Franci piles capacity 80 tons.
