Jahn Sports Hall in Lippstadt

New opportunities

The Jahnplatz in Lippstadt is the sporting center of the city, so the new Jahnsporthalle creates new opportunities here.

The construction of the new three-field sports hall adds another attractive element to the sporting centre of the city.

The new Jahn Sports Hall in Lippstadt, Germany, enhances the sporting centre of the city and harmonises perfectly with its surroundings. The joint project between the Evangelical Church and the city of Lippstadt offers more opportunities for schools and associations.

The Jahnplatz in Lippstadt (North Rhine-Westphalia) is a paradise for sports enthusiasts. It offers not only the opportunity to play football or burn off energy on the running track but also ample scope for individual sports. For example, the dirt park for mountain bikers, the skatepark or the large exercise park.

The construction of the new three-field sports hall adds another attractive element to the sporting centre of the city. Eling architekten of Lippstadt have created a modern 2,450 m² three-field hall on behalf of the city and the Evangelical Church of Westphalia, which harmonises perfectly with the local surroundings.

The existing retaining wall bordering on Jahnplatz was skilfully integrated into the design, offering visitors as a place to sit and watch the world go by.

Located in the immediate vicinity of the secondary school and the Jahnplatz, the light-flooded white hall rests on a brick base.

The existing retaining wall bordering on Jahnplatz was skilfully integrated into the design, offering visitors as a place to sit and watch the world go by.

Here visitors will also find the entrance, with long concrete stairs leading into the foyer, which is flooded with light thanks to the large windows. There is also a ramp leading into the new building.

Acoustic ceiling panels enhance the wood-and-concrete aesthetic.

Inside Jahn Sports Hall, a large grandstand offers space for about 600 people, and there are several multi-purpose rooms, which can be used for the theory lessons taught alongside the sports classes, as well as changing rooms.
Light concrete elements are combined with light wood elements, making the entire hall, which also includes a climbing wall, bright and inviting. In keeping with this design, acoustic panels in a natural wood tone were installed on the ceiling.
Since its inauguration in October 2021, the Jahn Sports Hall has enjoyed great popularity not only among students but also among clubs.
