E + E and Leth & Gor wins Langvang Multifunctional Sports Building competition

Elkiær + Ebbeskov and LETH & GORI has been announced as the winner of Randers Municipality and The Danish Foundation for Culture and Sport Facilities’ competition for the Langvang Multifunctional Sports Building.
Competing teams were led by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter, CEBRA, COBE and Kontur. Langvang Multifunctional Sports Building is a combined Sports hall and community centre consisting of a series of different multifunctional arenas for activities and events.
The building comprises indoor athletics facilities with a 200m running track, 60m running track, and facilities for high jump, long jump, pole vault, javelin, discus, hammer throw and short put, along with different arenas for sports , a 200m  rollerskating track, play areas, dressing rooms, offices and meeting facilities for the sports clubs and a café.
The building is based on an idea of double programming of space – for  example double use of the indoor running tracks for roller skating or fencing. Another example is mattresses for athletics that are used for martial arts and high rope climbing routes.
A unique space designed especially for women double functions as a dance hall and a multipurpose hall for meetings, concerts, theatre or parties. The roof of the building is also designed as an activity landscape which facilitates runners, skaters, bikes, roller skating and skiing in wintertime.
