On the 13th of October 2017 the sports centre De Beeck at the Molenweidtje burnt down completely. Nothing remained of the indoor council chamber, swimming pool and sportcomplex. Slangen+Koenis were asked to design a new building with the same functions. They created at once one of the most sustainable buildings of the province of Noord-Holland.
We were called upon to design the ground level. The parking programme on the forecourt was folded around the existing plane-trees and fits seamlessly with a square area with an inline skating facility.
