As small town communities often lack inviting and active public spaces, the Activity Landscape introduces a model for a low-cost sports hall that offer an outdoor and sheltered informal space that playfully encourage activity and recreation, all day and all year around.

The first example of the Activity Landscape opened earlier this year and have become a popular focal point in Harboøre, DK. In contrary to traditional sports halls that are tailor-made for formal sports and mostly used during the winter, the Activity Landscape creates a seamless transition between the interior and exterior space, which opens up for a wider range of informal as well as formal usage. From in- and outdoor skating, soccer, flee-markets or concerts, the Activity Landscape offers a new type of public space where activity can extend beyond the sheltered space and out to the open.

The design consists of two mail elements: The building and landscape.

Cladded with translucent polycarbonate sheets on a basic structural frame, the building is essentially a large shelter that reduces glare while offering a natural ambient lighting indoors that accentuates the spatial relation to the outdoors.

Hills of grass, asphalt and concrete undulate in, out and around creating a playful landscape that interacts with the building while encouraging a range of activities. The smooth asphalt and concrete hills, for instance, are perfect for skating and bicycling. The grass are better suited for climbing, running and tumbling down. Altogether, the hills and its surfaces creates an in- and outdoor spatial composition that encourage recreation and social interaction.
