Flybox, located in Rishon Le-Zions' growing sports and entertainment district, showcases an impressive combination of engineering prowess and creative design, offering a unique indoor skydiving experience. Powered by state-of-the-art technology, this project centers around the simulator equipment, featuring two high-performance turbine engines mounted on a 20-meter bridge.
These advanced engines efficiently draw air into the flight chamber, generating speeds of up to 300 km/h, before directing it downward through the return air towers. The air is then redirected from the towers at the base of the tunnel, 7 meters below the floor, and guided through an inlet contractor. This process effectively compresses and accelerates the air, creating optimal conditions for an exhilarating indoor skydiving adventure.
The architectural design places a strong emphasis on safety and ensuring a thrilling experience for both participants and spectators. Alongside the simulator equipment, the facility incorporates functional spaces such as communal areas, a cafeteria, a training zone, and offices, all designed to enhance the overall indoor skydiving journey.
The building's aesthetic is carefully crafted to evoke a sense of lightness, levitation, and the exhilaration of flight. A perforated façade allows for the play of natural and artificial lighting, creating a dynamic atmosphere that accentuates the feeling of wind flow.
What sets this design apart is its inclusivity, engaging not only the participants but also the spectators. The innovative architecture provides an opportunity for onlookers to witness the captivating indoor skydiving experience firsthand, fostering a shared sense of excitement and wonder.
