TEAM: Vanessa Niemeyer, Viviane Schefers – German, Leibniz University Hannover


The project site is situated on the western part of the city of Hannover, in a green filter between two districts. The main project aims to keep as much of the public green space as possible. The result is a proposal compact in footprint and its vertical form. The landscape behind the building is forrest like albeit its position in the urban context.

The present proposal offers space for competitive sports and fun sports. It is a sport facility with a focus on different sports such as swimming, indoor surfing, climbing wall, a gym, volleyball court, table tennis, boxing, basketball and soccer. At the same time it is an interesting public space with seminar and conference rooms, a rooftop hostel and a restaurant with bar on the ground floor. It is a hybrid building designed for people to meet and dwell.

The interior space builds up around a central atrium like tetris stones. It has eight floors in total, two basement floors with a parking garage, one ground floor and four upper floors.

The choosen material for the facade is LINIT glas by Glasfabrik Lamberts. The undercut on the north facade targets insights into the indoor activities and acts as a connecting threshold.
