Award Entry

Bright and cheerful village sport hall given a fresh take with numeral motifs 

As the construction of the sports hall was financed by a small village with a limited budget, the structure of the hall is very simple and undemanding. Its architectural design uses simple expressional means. Besides the position of the grey panels on the façade and the colour design of the interior, the basic idea is a ‘numeral’ motif where individual numbers are interconnected with sports symbols.

The colourfulness of the hall is also given by the layout of the interior. Separate units such as sportsmen's locker rooms, corridors, muscle-conditioning gym are of different colours than the spaces intended for the spectators. As the decoration of the interior (floors, walls and ceilings) is also very simple, the hall resembles an austere spatial unit-built structure.

Sport hall in Dolni Dobrouc was designed as a time-gathering document. The building time on this project was very short and in this time it was necessary to make alterations. In the design face of buildings are seeing the phasing in position of grey panels, windows and in position of red numbers. The building was completed in autumn 2009 and open for business during spring 2010.
