From the architect. Built to house cultural events in a town with active club membership, this hall also hosts sporting events and seasonal festivals. A composite use required flexibility, durability, and safety. Seating 500, the project houses a youth club, offices for local officials, and the town doctor. The sectional resolution of the entrance at street level and the main hall four metres below, generates the space. A broad corridor provides access to public facilities, and provides an overview of activities taking place in the hall.

Stairs terminate both ends of this tribune, connecting the upper and lower levels. Food service, storage, green rooms and mechanical areas are housed beneath the entrance block. Code requires that these rooms receive daylight and fresh air. Concrete sewer culverts mounted at 45 degrees to the foundation walls fulfill environmental requirements and lend a dramatic character to the streetscape. These light cannons are lit for events, signaling activities to the community.

Typical German architecture: too severe, square and unforgiving
leaving little for human factors like sensitivity, empathy and
open mindedness.

who can tell me which kind of material they use for the floor, which has many circle in it? is it translucent?

Certainly the most affluent-looking community center I've seen recently; the composition and materials suggest an extremely refined mentality - I wonder if the kids that use it will feel compelled to tone down their play because of it...

I find the use of oval's intriguing- a great symbol for the space. A community centre that has all of its parts (cultural, political, medical, etc) working in a cyclical nature.

The true test will be to see how these parts learn to work together. The cultural space looks like it will be compromised as the 9:00am band practice will be moved as a result of the morning town hall/ political meeting.

it is a little bit "silly", thing that gives the building seems more fresh, more friendly even it's the box of function and orthogonality.I don't know, those naiv circules are so funny ,they don't bring the apereance of a stupid building, on the contrary, they give something funny and spice.
