Within this project, a wing built in the 1960s will be demolished and replaced with a new one: the Ursa building. The building will have four aboveground floors. It will be integrated into the NOVA building (Baltic Film and Media School) completed in 2012 and connected at the other end by a linking gallery to the historic TERRA building. The new building will hold a full-sized sports hall with a spectator level, along with a study building with a spacious two-storeyed lobby. The basement will hold changing rooms and ancillary rooms, a gym, a dance hall, and mechanical rooms. The new building will be made from monolithic concrete and steel, constructed partially on a pile foundation. The walls will be lightweight walls on termo purlins, monolithic or made from SW panels. Flat SBS roof. The façade will be clad with perforated aluminium panels.
