Competition win in Bihlafingen

Birk Heilmeyer und Frenzel Architekten’s contribution was awarded first prize in the course of the multiple commission for the construction of a new sports hall in Bihlafingen/Laupheim.
The selected location of the sports hall marks the northern boundary of the premises. With its southern edge and the existing northern slope it defines a lawn for sports and outdoor festivities. The compact structure with its shallow gable roof benefits from the topography of the site. Some of the functional areas disappear within the slope, resulting in a moderate development of building mass and height. The archetypal building featuring a wooden façade is reminiscent of a barn and naturally blends in with the rural surroundings.
