Eemvallei hockey club house

Sturdy and light, with great views over the fields

For the design of the club house of HC Eemvallei, we deliberately deviated from the original layout plan. Not sandwiched between the car park and fields, but in a corner of the plot offering a great view over the fields. A sturdy and light building. The floating roof with a transparent intermediate layer rests on a solid, closed base. The perfect place for changing rooms and storage.
A sports club often has a limited budget, which is why we chose simple materials: stone blocks with horizontal joints for the base and glass with wood for the construction. The green interior gives it a fresh feel and is a playful reference to the club colours. The terrace leads into a large, wide staircase that offers an informal grandstand view over the hockey field.
