Culturaland Sports Center Beretinec The municipality Beretinec is located in the northwest of Croatia, adjacent to the city Varaždin. With its approximately 2000 inhabitants, it is one of the smaller communities in the region, which is mainly known for its viticulture. In order to counteract the strong migration, the municipality strives to provide a large cultural offer, which is particularly reflected in the large number of social, cultural and sports clubs. Due to the rapid development of new clubs in the last 5 years, a lack of space has emerged, which complicates their work and further progress. Therefore, a new cultural and sports center is planned. The idea is to create a multifunctional space that serves as a gathering place for the community as well as for people from the rural surroundings and the city of Varaždin. The focus is on ecological straw bale construction and the design standards of a passive house. The cultural and sports center revitalize the center of the village and will be a centre of attraction for surrouding areas. The intention is to cooperatively develop the project in different stages. The aim of this thesis is to work closely with the community to develop a design for the cultural and sports center, which is to be build in the next step.
