The Lekhwiya Sports Complex will be the home stadium for the winning team of the Royal Cup, the Lekhwiya Club. The complex will also be used as a training site and home base for a guest team participating in the 2022 World Cup.
Designed in collaboration with ECG, Pieper Sports Facility Consulting, and Site Concepts International, the Lekhwiya Sports Complex will serve as an identifiable icon for the home club, while its mix of uses will provide for a variety of experiences for players, fans, and sponsors alike. Inspiration for the design drew from longstanding aspects of Doha’s and Qatar’s culture and their dominating features. For instance, Doha’s location on the water, its history as a port city, and its boating and sailing culture inspired the design of the stadium’s very form. At the same time, the history of pearl harvesting in the Arabian Gulf is referenced in the smooth white oval and dome shapes.

Tenniscalator is a proposal for a new tennis centre in Vaxjo, Sweden. Made entirely out of wood it spans an area of 9000 m2. The site chosen for the project is large enough to welcome a one level tennis complex programme. However, a quick analysis of the areas shows the possibility of concentrating everything in almost 10% of the plot area. this concentration in the northern part of the parcel allows the development of a 13652 square meters landscape facing the future built developments. Layering tennis courts is aimed to give a landmark character to the proposal. The wooden totem reaches a height of 58 meters. Not too high, nor too flat, this iconic piece of wood is now visible from far, easy to recognize, easier to identify the neighbourhood.
Building compact permits environmental advantages such as economies of energies and displacements. Heating, ventilation, water, gas and electricity networks are shorter in a vertical setting then in the horizontal one.

It has three swimming pools: one with 6 lanes of 25 metres in length, a swimming pool of learning and other one with water beds, Jacuzzi and massage jets. What particularity stands out is its large central space linked to the sports activities and it’s a glass prism with maximum use of natural light and allows the best ventilation of the spaces.

The location of the Sport Complex and Swimming Center in La Florida, Vigo, was a challenge because it was in a empty space of a built block, with a very high slope. So, the superior level stayed and the building was constructed below this level and it develops the functional program semi-buried. Therefore, on top of the building, was projected a public square and the slope of the terrain.

Situated in the Leidsche Rijn, a newly built housing district within the periphery of Utrecht, the Sports Campus aims to contribute a public and rather iconographic aspect to the predominantly low-rise area, lacking points of recognition. Two schools, divided up into four wings, stretched out onto the boundaries of the terrain, are organized around a centrally positioned volume containing the shared facilities.

The word “polilleuger” arises from a proposal to conduct a sports facility with the idea of sustainability and low maintenance. We must rethink the architecture, like so many other things in society. This was the idea of this equipment. Leveraging the existing soil. Give more use to the sports that schools use very few hours a day.

In 2006 we were asked to design the revitalization of a farmstead for congress, company presentation, holding of corporate events and leisure activities. For this purpose our client bought 19th century farmstead located at a large pound. The farmstead included a distillery with it’s chimney. From 1926 there have lived storks on the chimney. It became the main reason for buying this farm.
