Located inside the woods of a
garden city right at the edge of Rome in Italy, the
Olgiata Sporting Club is created by the Laboratorio Di Architettura e Design (LAD) in 2010.
The project has three different pavilions which host the programs of
the Sporting Club, with the central one containing the administrative
center as well as the entrance into the complex leading the way through
the other areas via the main staircase.
The lower level is where the locker rooms are and there are two
pavilions, the south one containing the gyms and the north one hosting
the swimming pools. You can access the different areas through different
paths so that each section is somewhat autonomous and aside from the
indoors, there are also football fields, tennis courts and a
beach-volley court outside.
The structure is comprised of zink-titanium by Rheinzink for the roof and the beams are made of glulam which was created by Holzbau in Italy.
