The city of Hoofddorp required a relatively large sports centre. The local authority asked a few real estate developers to design a building plan, which allowed for a prominent place for the sports centre but which also included other buildings which are needed to finance the sports centre.
The winning plan was designed by Zwarts & Jansma, by commission of development company Meerschip.
The plan did not only include the sports centre but also a hotel, several industrial accommodations, day-care centres, a congress centre, a fitness centre, a large parking garage and an office centre.
The sports centre was the central theme of our design: a complex with a connection between the buildings, making the sports centre accessible for everybody. To emphasize this idea we also designed a large training circuit situated across the undulating roofs and through some of the buildings.
