Troldtekt acoustic solutions help to meet the requirements for durability, flexible design and good acoustics in modern sports construction.

Schools designed for movement. Indoor space with parkour and street football. A sports complex where elite sports and rehabilitation are brought together under one roof. In 2020, sport and movement take place in new forms and new facilities. Here it is important that the architecture is designed for physical activity and noise – but still with a sense of aesthetics.

Read how informal activity environments can motivate citizens to move, thereby nudging public health in a positive direction. And see the conclusions of the Danish project Skole+, which has identified how the renewal of existing schools can help children move more in everyday life.

Visit Holbæk Sportsby, a sports complex where a swimming pool, racket sports, a multi-purpose hall, mountain bike trails and a modern health centre are assembled in 23,000 newly built square metres. And read about the new phenomenon of street meccas.

The feature also offers inspiration from a Faroese multi-purpose hall as well as the two Danish projects: Idrættens Hus in Roskilde and Aarhus International Sailing Centre. Common to the projects is that Troldtekt acoustic solutions help to meet the requirements for durability, flexible design and good acoustics in modern sports construction.

Well thought out architecture motivates exercise

Architecture can motivate citizens to move and thus nudge public health in a positive direction. Informal activity environments are therefore gaining traction in northern Europe – at street level and in the built environment.

Senior lecturer in sport science, Karin Book from Malmö University explains how architects can make activity areas attractive to citizens.

Architecture can get children moving

The interior design of schools has a major impact on children’s activity levels. This has been shown by the Danish project Skole+, which has explored how the renewal of existing architecture promotes children’s movement.

One of the six schools in the project is Søndervangskolen in Aarhus. Here, presentation stairs and a movement path were integrated into the new design.

Sports complex brings together elite sports and rehabilitation under one roof

Holbæk Sportsby in Denmark is one of Scandinavia’s largest sports complexes. The complex brings together everything from mountain bike sports to modern treatments and creates a meeting place for both children and adults.

In an interview, architect Nicolas Munkø from the Kullegaard architectural firm explains the design considerations behind the project.

Street sports bring children together across all ages and cultural backgrounds

An old industrial building has been converted into an asphalted street sports centre. The aim is to strengthen the sense of community between children across all ages and cultural backgrounds.

Aalborg Streetmekka is one of six facilities in Denmark operated by the nonprofit organisation GAME with the support of a number of foundations.

Sport requires good acoustics and natural strength

Buildings for sport and movement must be designed with flexible, durable materials. The acoustic properties of the materials are very important when the space must accommodate everyone from keen football players to jubilant children.

See how Troldtekt acoustic solutions allow you to meet the requirements for modern sports construction – while also bringing a natural product into your project.
