VV Capelle Soccer Clubhouse by MoederscheimMoonen Architects

Category: Architecture Published on 13 Nov, 2012 Tags: , , , , ,

Rotterdam firm MoederscheimMoonen Architects have recently completed the VV Capelle Soccer Clubhouse, a building that is a part of the overall modernization of the Sportpark ´t Slot in the Dutch city of Capelle aan den IJssel. The newly build structure, consisting of two volumes, houses the changing rooms and the canteen that functions as a meet-and-greet area for soccer players and visitors.

Looking at the design, the canteen is the center of attention. Being a sturdy black pavilion from the back, it opens itself towards the pitch displaying an open and transparent character. The cut-outs in the dark volume are emphasized by green tints representing the clubs color while also relating to the pitch. The second lower volume made of brick is the robust backbone of the project; the players changing rooms. Due to the separation of the distinct functions into two volumes the project lends itself for future expansions without destroying the qualities of the concept, making it a sustainable project in terms of durability.
