Text description provided by the architects. The Sports Center is located in Csomád, Hungary. Csomád is a small settlement in the northern metropolitan area of Budapest with the population of ca. 1500 people. The leadership of the village is dedicated toward architectural quality: in 2008 they won 2nd prize on Pest County’s Architectural Award, and in 2015 they won the special award for village renewal of the Association of Hungarian Architects (Magyar Építőművészek Szövetsége)!
The Sports Center is the first phase of the local sport area development. The building was placed between the two existing football pitches. The 2nd phase future extension will be placed alongside the bigger football field, hidden partially under the hillside. Phase one is designed to perform as a balanced architectural element on its own, yet the two phases are also going to provide a nice composition. The thin, concrete slab serving as a “levitating” outdoor bridge connecting the two phases is built already in phase one lending a somewhat dynamic touch to the otherwise closed shape of the Sports Center.
The geometry of the building evolved a lot through the design process. In the end it “found” its place and shape interacting sensitively with the site and its urban function.
The ground floor contains a pub and the restrooms while the changing rooms and the spaces of the football club are on the first floor. The ground floor is open to visitors and the two floors can be used separately.
Due to its dynamic, simple design, the new building stands out among the pitched roof residential buildings of its surroundings. Small gestures and detailing like the special blue color used many places throughout the building which is typical to the village, or the abstract reappearance of the inner yard of traditional local houses however make locals recognize the Sports Center as their own, and they seem to take pride in showing it to all the guests of various sports and village events.
Product Description. The white plaster is the principal material used on the façade and emphasizes the simple and dynamic form of the new Sports Center in Csomád, Hungary. The white plaster facade gives a characteristic, modern look to the Sport Centre among the residential houses and the green landscape in the village.
