belgian architectural firm dmvA have developed a sports hall for the school of KA hiel. situated in an urban area in brussels the campus land varies in height and is connected by attached buildings and apartments.

the new sports hall is implanted as an autonomous object. the new hall shows a harmonious transition between the main building and the small-scaled nursery-school. the entrance of the sports hall is through a natural incision in the sloping terrain.

the sports hall is an active building, where the internal playing-field has been transferred to the outside walls. on the concrete volumes colored sports field lines are applied and used as a tennis wall, a soccer wall and a climbing wall.
