The construction of the HOBBY MARKET created a building with retail and storage areas, protected areas, paved surfaces, roads, necessary infrastructure and other elements to be used in the operation of the BAUHAUS shopping complex. PHAROS Bratislava is strategically located near M. R. Štefánik Airport.

The main function of the building with a total area of 20,814 m2 is the operation of a store and services with construction, house, flat and garden products. Providing refreshments to customers only enlarges the offer.

The layout of the building consists of three basic parts: the main sales hall, garden centre and Drive-in – sales to cars.

The one-storey building without a basement has a two-storey office and social extension. The buildings consists of a prefabricated reinforced concrete frame made of supporting columns, ground beams, tie beams, purlins, trusses and sandwich walls. Columns are embedded into the monolithic foundation footings carrying the bored piles. Façade sandwich panels with mineral wool filling in combination with glazed surfaces made of an aluminium post and partition system are used for the peripheral cladding.
