Breda Sports centre

Breda | Claudius Prinsenlaan

2012

The Sports Centre, located in the curve of the Claudius Prinsenlaan in Breda, has had great iconic value for the town for many decades. Despite this value the building, realised in the sixties, was due to be demolished. Because of the renovation and the nuanced architectural approach, the building has been listed as a national heritage building from the post-war period, exempting it from demolition. The essence of the design was to strip the building completely and remove all the clutter that had been added over the years. After this thorough renovation, a beautiful building emerged from the period of reconstruction and structuralism in the Netherlands.
