The inclusive roof

With an overhang of 16 metres, the roof of EM2N's Heuried Sports Centre in Zurich is a compositional element which characterising the project.

Modulated topographically, it allows the complex to become a part of the urban context with a new scale compared to the pre-existing building, a 1964 structure for leisure and sport which the Swiss firm has extended. 

The various parts of the new construction are treated as though they were a landscape, with different levels connected by ramps, stairways and inclined walkways, all in close relation to the garden and the external open areas.
