POLO Architects laureate architectural competition Gooreind sports centre
POLO Architects won the architectural competition that was organised by the municipality of Wuustwezel for the construction of new sports infrastructure in Gooreind.
The fully fledged sports centre will have facilities for all ball games to be played competitively. The design also includes a dance hall and a cafeteria.
The vast landscape and the characteristic barns of this area served as an inspiration for the sports centre's shape resembling a contemporary barn. POLO Architects designed a solitary volume with a discreet, yet explicit presence because of its shape and materialisation.
The jury praised the strong architectural concept, the design's functionality and user-friendliness and the detailed technical implementation.
The new sports centre is due to be completed by the 2018-2019 sports season.
