Sports Pavillion by MoederscheimMoonen Architects

This pavilion with illuminated eaves was designed by Dutch firm MoederscheimMoonen Architects for two football teams in Rotterdam.

The sports pavilion forms part of Park 16Hoven, a new residential suburb of the city.

The two-storey building has dressing rooms and storage on the ground floor covered by turf mounds, which slope down to meet the pitch surface on the northern side.

The clubhouse and boardrooms on the upper storey overlook the pitches, with the grassy slopes forming a natural grandstand.

The roof extends on all sides and is illuminated at night by LEDs.

Sports-pavilion in Rotterdam by MoederscheimMoonen Architects

MoederscheimMoonen Architects recently delivered a new sports-pavilion for two soccer clubs in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The project is part of the development of Park 16Hoven; a large new suburban neighborhood adjacent to the city center and the airport.

Within the open space between the airport and newly developed houses in the park, the aim for the design was to create a transparent and ‘lightweight’ pavilion.

The building is set up in two levels. The clubhouses and the boardrooms are situated on the top floor of the building. This level is directly connected to the pitches by grass-covered slopes.

These slopes cover the ground floor with its dressing rooms and storage areas, and provide a natural grandstand for spectators.

The final piece of the building is the translucent cantilevered roof. This roof filters direct sunlight and illuminates like a lampoon in the evening thanks to the integration of LED powered lighting.

The building is iconic in its direct environment due to the continuous outline of the building and the illuminated roof.
