Built in the center of one of Montréal’s most diverse neighborhoods, the Stade de Soccer de Montréal is a new visual and cultural symbol in the city. Utilizing custom-fabricated Banker Wire mesh partitions around its indoor playing field, the stadium provides tens of thousands of soccer players with a first-class practicing and playing environment.
The design of the Stade de Soccer de Montréal pays homage to and blends in with its surrounding landscape – a former quarry now being turned into what will be the largest urban park in Montréal. Outside, the stadium shows its versatility as a structure built around the topography, not despite it.

Clubhouse of Eindhoven hockey club Oranje-Rood opened: eye-catching, functional and sustainable
Diederendirrix architecture & urban development designed a striking pavilion for hockey club Oranje-Rood. The large canopy built from laminated wooden joists in a triangular grid, supported by a few pillars, is extraordinary. The structure extends from the outside into the inside and creates a special interior with an unobstructed view of the fields. This year, Oranje-Rood originated from a merger between the successful top-class sports club Oranje-Zwart (first division champions for the last three years) and recreational sports club EMHC. This new start called for a new, modern clubhouse.

Play is about finding ones place in the world and making sense of that world. We have created a plan that seeks to juxtapose two different worlds. The man made and the natural. The plan has an urban exterior and a wild natural interior, each space contains a different type of play.

It is the extension of the Teresianas School of the c/ Ganduxer.
Because of its heritage value, the passage of time and the various education reforms, the school has been left without enough classroom space and recreational covered areas.
The new extension re-locates all grades and provides the school with new covered sports space with the necessary infrastructure to provide a service to the school and extracurricular activities.

The National Shooting Centre was built for the Pan American Games in 2007. The built has been renovated by Vigliecca & Associados to meet Olympic standards without changing the identity of the original structure.
Although it is a recent construction, the building had to attend more specific standards established by the International Shooting Sport Federation and also needed maintenance upgrades for the target system as well as the air conditioning, hydraulic and electrical systems.
The project focused on meeting Olympic requirements, which included three times more seating capacity as well as making sure it would be useful after the Olympics once left as a legacy.

Macdonald had been a gigantic distribution center since the 1970s, located at Macdonald Street in Paris. OMA was the master planner of the project and their proposal was rather distinctive. They preserved the old two-storied building (which extends as long as 500m), and asked 5 other architects to work on newly added programs. We were responsible for the western part of the building, and designed facilities for a junior and senior high schools, and local sports center.
