Danish architects Elkiær + Ebbeskov (E+E) and Leth & Gori have won an invited competition to design a large multifunctional sports building in Langvang, Denmark. Competing against teams led by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter, CEBRA, COBE and Kontur, their winning proposal features a combined sports hall and community centre consisting of a series of multifunctional arenas for activities and events. The scheme also includes a masterplan of the surrounding area centered around sports and recreation.
LETH & GORI was recently awarded the third prize in the open international competition with their proposal for an extension to Music Gymnasium Salzburg. Their design creates a new extension to the school without stealing space or light from the existing densely built site which is done by digging out the northern part of the site and inserting the extension as a one storey building with courtyards and skylights. Furthermore, the roof of the building becomes a new playful urban landscape for the students. More images and architects’ description after the break.
LETH & GORI shared with us their proposal for the Pilgrim Centre in Røldal which creates a new building in close connection with the 13th century church. Made as an extension to the existing church wall, their design becomes a natural and integral part of the Church complex. More images and architects’ description after the break.
