Individuals living in Singapore were looking for a house to serve a few different purposes, so they contacted Prow Architects to build this distinct abode. The house needed to provide an area for events so that people could gather and watch sports or anything else on the television, but not feel too cramped.

Prow Architects came up with a layered design. Two bedrooms are located at the top area of the house, which then move down to terraced shelving that also act as seats for when more people come over. In essence, the abode is shaped in a similar way to an arena, hence where it got its name. While this design might not be cozy for some, it still serves the purpose of accommodating large groups of people at once.
