The Birkerød Sports and Leisure Centre complex is intended to be multi-functional that includes a large multi-purpose hall with enough area to provide two handball courts with accompanying mobile spectator stands and a V.I.P. lounge. There are two additional smaller allowing the complex to accommodate major sporting events, concerts and other cultural events, as well as school sporting events and small, local sports initiatives requiring more intimate settings.
The Danish artist Astrid Krogh had taken part of this project, decorating it's exterior facades, proving that the collaboration between artist and architect is a great practice to get the building completed with a different style. Black circles form interlinking patterns when the louvres are closed – the translucent cladding bringing a glowing quality to the natural daylight filtering through to the interior spaces.
The façades were developed especially for this building project and represents an innovative façade solution, simply constructed of materials characterized by high-strength properties, and presenting an elegant appearance. The structure consists of panels of a composite material, popularly known as glass fibre, which is very strong and can be made to very thin specifications.
Moreover the composite can be glued to the glazing without the use of clunky mullions and tran-soms or the occurrence of friction between glass and frame. In the composite frame, vertical louvres can be drawn to one side, locked into the open or closed position, and so regulate light. And into these louvres, also made of composite material, various elements may be integrated.
