The sports club building in the Bijlmerpark, Amsterdam is a public facility including sports accommodations, a day care, an after school centre and a parking roof. The building bridges between the previously separated worlds of main infrastructure and residential park.
The architects designed a very long, very narrow building of 130 meters by 11 meters in the slope of the Karspeldreef. The multifunctional building orients itself both towards the infrastructure and the sports fields and acts as an interface between park and infrastructure.
By lifting the roof in the centre, the parking lot gets a characteristic pitched slope and the building faces both towards the road and towards the park, allowing for daylight and entrances from two sides.
