Utrecht Gym Facility – 23 Nov 2012
This building is a sports hall dedicated to Gymnastics. It will not be used for any other sports. Four clubs combine efforts in this new facility. It is the 3rd and probably last building in the redevelopment of the sports complex in the center of Utrecht called Nieuw Welgelegen. The brief excluded the possibility of creating windows in the hall. This turns out to be the main dilemma for this type of facility.

San Augustin Sports Centre – 8 Nov 2012
This building houses a 25-meter indoor swimming pool, a sports court and a football pitch. The land is sloping, therefore the project responds to this location by generating terraces. A great piece covered in corten steel fits on the back side of the plot and generates a front of 4 meters towards the football pitch.

Sports Center Sa Indiotería – added 18 Sep 2012
Instead of the image of an hermetic pavilion, here the intention is to give continuity from the inside space to the outside one. The building is implemented to bury the court and the locker rooms. The schema allows to go through, without visual barriers, from the park to the covered platform, to the stands, and finally descending to the court.
