• Elevated Sports Court in Spain
  • Posted 21 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 9312 Views
  • Due to an influx of children at a school in Zaragoza, Spain, architect Guzman de Yarza Blache of local practice J1 Arquitectos was given the tricky task of increasing the usable area of a 33 x 35 meter courtyard without disturbing the daily sports and leisure activities. The solution he came up with was to head upwards, elevating the multi-use sports court off of the ground and allowing children to play underneath. A double skinned metal cage which curves inwards at the top prevents equipment from flying over the side, while 300 different species of ivy helps the concrete structure to be less obtrusive. Improving the environments mood further, brightly coloured strips have been painted on the ground to mark the infantile play area.
