An inflatable pavilion for spectators with a useful area of 712 square meters was made for the Winter Sports Center named after Filipenko in January 2011. The design of the pneumatic construction, so called shell, was carried out jointly with the architects of Khanty-Mansiysk.
During the World Biathlon Championships, the inflatable cafe-restaurant simultaneously hosted over 600 visitors. A projector was installed inside, so that spectators were aware of events going on the tracks and the stadium. The pneumo-framed pavilion is located behind the northern rostrum, not far from the conference hall building.
The hangar was assembled by 8 people during 2 work shifts.
