A New Community Hub for Kwun Tong
The project aimed to transform this community recreation hub in a socially and environmentally sustainable manner to meet the demands of the growing Kwun Tong district population.
The redevelopment of the Kwun Tong Swimming Pool and Recreation Ground was conducted in two phases. Phase One consisted of a new five-pool complex, which included a FINA standard indoor pool with a 1,500-seat spectator stand for competitions and local events; while Phase Two saw the development of outdoor leisure facilities including an artificial turf soccer pitch with a 200-seat outdoor spectator stand, hard-paved soccer pitches, basketball and volleyball courts, an elderly fitness area, children’s play areas, a roller skating rink and a jogging trail.

The bias of SO/AP agency was to design an urban pattern generated by tools for parametric programming. The urban grid, the study of heights and typology of housing are the optimized results from simulations between a 3D parametric design software, and software for environmental analysis.
All data as solar radiation, natural lighting condition, thermal performance and water consumption have been integrated to the urban design from the beginning.
A urban grid with 20/20m plots – 10m spaced -, is at first uniformly contorted to have the optimize pattern following the contour lines on slopping fields. The simulating of solar potential generates two progressive areas of highest building. It defined two urban attractive areas; each one will be specially focused on winter activities or summer activities. A last parametric control working on plots morphology, define the optimized housing typology and zoning area.

By introducing the ‘Skate+Park’ concept, EFFEKT has created a new type of multi-functional and recreational urban park area that bridges user groups of diverse interests and age.
In the spring of 2013, Lemvig Municipality faced a group of citizens eager to transform an empty industrial lot on the city’s harbour front into an area of leisure and recreation. In order to meet the demands of the local population, EFFEKT worked closely with representatives from different user groups to develop a new type of urban space. The result of this collaboration was an integrated skatepark + urban park that offered a range of programmatic features and recreational opportunities. Set in beautiful surroundings, the park has created a new social space in Lemvig, attracting skaters and families from the entire region.

This new building is a remarkable amenity in the city centre, visible by its façades and its roof, a founding element of the project. We designed it to be both welcoming and protective, turned inwards towards inner courtyards to ensure privacy.

Atelier Kempe Thill has recently won the invited international competition for the transformation of Wintercircus Mahy in Ghent. The building that served as a circus building until the early 20th century and later as garage and showroom for the enormous old timer collection of car dealer G. Mahy will be transformed into a meeting-point and hotspot for creation and innovation. The new centre will house the ViAA (Flemish Institute for Archive of the audio-visual heritage), Luisterpunt – a library for blind people, i-Cubes – a centre for starting ICT – firms and, a new medium – size rock concert hall that will be constructed under the main atrium space.

The expression of St. Hyacinthe’s Aquatic and Recreational Centre reflects a trend of modernity. The allegorical representation of a glacier appears as an imposing fragment on the natural landscape. Across the flat horizon, the floating triangular masses of the building seek to anchor themselves with the ground. This scene is not alien to the Monteregian area of Québec, with its landscape of ancient eroded mountains forming a backdrop for the rectilinear farmland patterns of the area.
