In addition, the hall is generously supplied with day light by the north oriented round skylight. The kitchen and toilets are illuminated by skylights from the dormer. The incidence of light can be regulated by using curtains in order to create special lighting moods for different use occations such as meditation or yoga classes. To obtain more space flexibility during dance performances or celebrations the hall can be also divided by means of curtains into smaller sections . The building has one main and one side entrance.
