Konrad Adenauer Sports Center in Hamm-Rhynern

Similar to the middle school, the sports center was also designed as a solitary building set freely in the landscape. Whereas the base zone can be recognized by its facade of clear glazing and black stucco, the homogeneous hall form has a light and smooth appearance at the upper level. By day, its seamless polycarbonate facade appears milky and approximates the color of the sky. At night, the translucent skin seems like a luminous block of ice.

The load-bearing structure consists of a steel construction with columns only at the four corners. As a result, extensions with bleachers are possible in all directions. In the foyer, the visible steel structure, the industrial flooring and the typography on the wall constitute a synergy of construction and design.
