Sopron Basket Locker Room by IO line and round

Home > Winners > #76579


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Sopron Basket

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Locker Room

INSPIRATION:
To decide the overall design direction we tried to assess the characteristics of the life of a professional sports team. We were able to distinct three paths that we followed throughout the design process. These are the minimalistic functionalism, the futuristic appearance and the life of a professional female basketball athlete.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Sopron Basket is a successful professional women's basketball team based in Sopron, Hungary. The club management decided to invest in a new locker room complex to have a prestigious facility to the club's name, suit the player's needs better, motivate them and promote their unity. The goal of our design is to meet the management's vision and to create a unique and futuristic locker room complex, that stands out on an international level but remains devoted to the traditional team identity.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The complex is divided into a conference-coaching room and a private locker room area. Coaches are expected to wait in the locker room lobby, which contains a hidden kitchenette, and a spot for exclusive interviews. The locker room itself has a "communications wall" with screens and a magnetic whiteboard. There's a personal seat for every player, that can be easily decorated with magnets. Seats are democratically placed on a curve in a centralised arrangement, to promote team member equality.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2017 in Sopron, Hungary and finished in October 2018.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Implementation involved stretching technological boundaries: the shower room's concrete coated surfaces, the edgeless plexiglass lamp sunken into the wall, magnetic whiteboards with lit outlines of a basketball court. Seating furniture utilizes a complex system of geometry with no room for imprecision. Laser-cut steel sheets separate the player-seats, and front doors of the furniture are metal-covered. Hidden kitchen and toilet fronts are CNC-milled colored MDF with white laminate surfaces.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Sopron Basket's home is the Novomatic Arena, a city-owned sports facility in Sopron. To make the place in the arena for the new locker room complex, approximately 150 square meters of space were subtracted from a 400 square meters ground-floor windowless storage room. The determined space was further divided into two categories: a news-conference and recruit-coaching room, and the private locker room area itself.

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Key aspects of our research were the club's history, club identity, and modern locker rooms trends. Our main goal was to design something unique, leaving behind the shortcomings of the old facility, while retaining fundamental elements of the club's identity. Data were collected from online articles, by interviewing the owner and players, doing field research, analyzing club imagery, and so on. We believe that our design faithfully represents the team, and strengthens their identity.

CHALLENGE:
Due to space and resource limitations, we had to come up with innovative ideas in every room, to be able to maintain the design standard we set for ourselves. Many of our technical/technological solutions had been unprecedented in their respective fields, so we constantly consulted with experts in relevant professions, took active participation in implementation by experimenting, creating 1:1 models, developing alternative variants, to make sure results satisfy the requirements.
