For the new addition, two amorphous structures connected by a flat roof form the single-story gatehouse and offer a defined entrance area to the outdoor swimming pool and the green area. Their curved shape and their coloring in various shades of green blend in smoothly with the surroundings. The placement of the composition is slightly elevated and this way can be easily seen approaching from the city center.

Nauen Recreation Center

The northern building includes public services like a refectory, an information center, a wellness area and a food counter; all of them separately accessible from the street. Tickets counter, changing room and an area for the storage and the staff members are incorporated in the slightly smaller structure located on the south.

The building façade is built of prefabricated wood frames with triple glazing and exterior solar shading or insulated timber panels in the closed areas. For the inner support structure a disguised timber frame was chosen. The indoor characteristics are placed on a rectangular grid. The construction of the roof is based on molded laminated wood beams with an insulated extensively greened roof.

The new arrangement of the facility with hedges separating the green from the outdoor pool allows for public use during the winter. A multipurpose playing field includes, a ping-pong table, children’s playground, volleyball and mini-golf complete the ensemble.
