Primary School Aarle-Rixtel in Laarbeek, Holland by architecten|en|en

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Article source: architecten|en|en

A school building is a special building in a little village, because almost all the inhabitants have spent an important part of their life there.

This means that, as an architect, you can give children something for the rest of their lives, because everbody remembers his or hers old school building.

“The building as an adventure” was therefor the starting point of the design.

Gymnase Jean Gachet in Saint-Étienne, France by LiNk Architectes

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: LiNk Architectes

Between city center and boulevard, the gymnasium is part of a global project of urban requalification.

The program imposes the creation of a void where sports activities (sports field and climbing wall) will take place. This vacuum imposed by the sporting uses draws from the outset the volumetric draft of the project which is summed up with a regular parallelepiped implanted along the boulevard. From this constraint, the project seeks to radiate beyond its own physical limits. The urban scale then becomes the means of punctuating the main volume and anchoring it in the site and in the city. It is through urban windows that the building directs, locates, and articulates this new urban project in the city. These windows are voluntarily out of scale, and are expressed by point stretches of the main volume. Focusing on existing urban and landscape events (garden, large Sequoia, crassier), they become a pretext for opening views and favoring natural light. The use of extruded aluminum on the façade contributes to the moderation of the building’s mass by means of changes in color, light, and volume perception.

Les Closiaux in Clamart, France by Dominique Coulon & associés

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Article source: Dominique Coulon & associés

The building is located in a 1950s residential area in the Paris suburbs. The large sports hall is positioned at the far end of the site, giving the street a degree of amplitude and generating a public space which reinforces the building’s status as a community facility. The volume of the accommodation is in keeping with the houses in the neighbourhood. The fragmentation of the programmes produces a displacement between the two volumes, offering glimpses of the central part of the site and opening up views towards the gardens.

The 4th Gymnasium in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Paul de Ruiter Architects

Article source: Paul de Ruiter Architects 

In the first energy-neutral district of Amsterdam, the Houthavens, we designed the 4th Gymnasium. An energy-neutral secondary school that accommodates about 800 students. The school functions as the entrance of the new district. The Houthavens had an industrial role for years and will transform into a vibrant district with several islands in the upcoming years. A great variety of buildings and residents will take their place here. The 4th Gymnasium serves as a herald for the further developments of this area.

Pro-fitness Gymnasium in Kurukshetra, India by Studio Ardete

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Article source: Studio Ardete


Born out of the idea of an individualistic and practical space design, Pro fitness Gymnasium is located in Kurukshetra, a small town in the state of Haryana. This ambitious project, spread over an area of 5000 sqft, was imagined and built as the largest gymnasium in the city.

The main challenge was to break the stereotypes surrounding the design of fitness spaces and to put together a new array of elements and systems that would work as a prototype whilst giving the space a bold, distinctive look.
