FINE WAVE

KVIBERG IS- & SPORTHALL IN GOTHENBURG From a military training field to an area for sports and athletics: the site in Kviberg Park is being redeveloped, the latest feature being the new Is- & Sporthall (ice & sports hall) with bookable times for clubs and schools in Gothenburg’s suburb of Kviberg. The client’s desire to build as much as possible in wood and fossil-free has given the whole building strong architectural elements. Gothenburg-based architects Wahlström & Steijner have designed a multifunctional arena. One of the goals in the design of the sports area has been to create space for different sports organisations. There are clubs for various ball sports such as handball, basketball, floorball and badminton, and fencing and gymnastics also have their place in the sports hall. For training, the hall can be divided into two handball courts with the aid of curtains or into one handball court and two smaller courts. The ice rink is available for ice hockey and figure skating organisations, but also for public skating.
