The sports hall light is located at Harboøre Stadium and Sports & Cultural Centre which provide good opportunities to include the sports hall light in the entire range of sports activity possibilities. The front’s transparent gates can be opened and closed depending on the weather. In the summer, the hall is very open and accessible to the users. Among the users, you will find both children and young people, skaters and ballplayers and older croquet enthusiasts.
A sports hall light is built on a principle of the possibilities in an unheated sports centre without changing rooms that at the same time manages to express a strong architectural quality. The idea behind a sports hall light is not for it to replace traditional sports building but to be an alternative to a boring and pared down version of the conventional build.
With the first efforts to develop sports hall light as alternatives, the Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities took the initiative all the way back in the 2000s. The sports hall light in Harboøre is one of the two realised sports halls light from the second attempt of the Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities to develop the special qualities of the sports halls light. This happened in the development process called “Sports hall light 2.0” which took place in 2012. The other realised sports hall light from this process is located in Gentofte. A third hall from this process has yet to be build.
