More specifically, our project consists of a concrete plinth that
accommodates the multi-sports hall, the stands, changing rooms, entrance
hall and cafeteria, on top of which sits a box that houses a fencing
hall with its own dedicated changing rooms. These elements employ a
range of construction methods that are clearly expressed in the exterior
massing of the building as well as in its interiors.
On entering the building, the volume of the sports hall is clearly visible from the entrance, surrounded by the vertical timber members that create the look of a forest clearing.
The cafeteria is on a mezzanine level and extends out onto an exterior terrace.
Between the entrance hall and the mezzanine, above the sports hall changing rooms, with no public access, is a hidden level, where most of the technical spaces are located (the boiler room, heating and air conditioning), with direct access from the street on the north side of the building.
Program: Sports hall and fencing room international competition approved, bar and secondary rooms.
