Pulsen Community Centre designed by Elkær + Ebbeskov and Leth & Gori architects is a village within a village including a sports centre, healthcare facilities and a cultural centre all under one roof. With its focus on health, sports and well-being, Pulsen is a vibrant venue for local activities and the new heart of the local community. The community centre is located in the north west of Denmark. Local citizens initiated the project to improve the quality of life, with the support of The Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities (LOA). The citizens wanted to secure local healthcare services by creating a vibrant working environment for doctors, physiotherapists, dieticians and other specialists. Their aim was to create a facility accommodating a range of activities like sports, education and culture to support all aspects of a social and healthy life. The structure features paths leading from the village to the building, and the area for outdoor programmes such as football courts

and athletics fields continues inside via paths between the indoor sport programmes leading to the inner activity square as the new meeting place in town. The main functions are located in separate volumes connected by covered streets, alleys and squares. The common space between the building volumes is the space for self-organised and unprompted activities. It is an irregular versatile space covered by a glass panel roof, open towards the sky and the landscape. Operational concept: simultaneity The centre features the activity square, multipurpose hall, sports hall, spinning room, fitness room, wellness building including chang sb 5/2019
