FOJAB to design Bromma's new sports hall

Together with Hemsö, FOJAB is developing a new sports hall in Bromma with a focus on girl-dominated sports.

It will be Sweden's first specially adapted ice rink for figure skating and a gymnastics arena for team gymnastics - all under the same roof. FOJAB has assisted Hemsö in the work on the sports facility in the early stages, plan development, design and collaboration with the sports movement.

- We have worked closely with the Swedish Figure Skating Federation and the Swedish Gymnastics Federation to understand their conditions," says architect Anna Belfrage.

- As well as meeting their sporting requirements and wishes, it is equally important that the building is socially functional. Many of the children and young people come straight from school, train in long sessions and spend a lot of time in the sports hall. Facilitating everyday life for them and their parents has therefore been an important focus and we have planned a place to do homework and eat snacks or heat their evening meal - a bit like a leisure center.
