The glass roof design utilizes natural lighting to light-filled the sports hall during the day. At night, each of the 84 pyramid-like glass spikes is lightened up by 7 meters of OSRAM LF 05CA RGB-3 LED strips, creating an “inside-out” impressive illumination. Driven by e:cue DMX2PWM dimmer and Butler XT2 control engine, lighting on each spike is individually adjustable and programmable with color-changing RGBW lights. The spectacular lighting effects can be preprogrammed and controlled via Wi-Fi with 8 push-buttons, enabling customization that suits the aesthetic needs that various events might necessitate. Located near the university quarter, students can benefit from the modern sports complex and discover new possibilities to get active. Besides hosting international sporting events, the Spike Sports Hall also has facilities suitable for cultural events and theatrical productions.
