This new sports gymnasium and changing rooms replace the old free standing gym that was no longer fit for purpose. The gym is completely separate in term of access but is no longer a free standing object and is integrated physically within the school next door on this tight urban block. The new gym is made specifically for the needs of the visually impaired pupils of Visio Basisonderwijs.
The lighting is extremely adjustable to range from almost darkness to extremely bright and well lit. This is so that a variety of extreme lighting scenarios can be created depending on the types of lessons and needs of the pupils. The floor covering colours relate to specific colour contrast combinations and textures on the floor signal the outer walls which are softly padded. The textures can be sensed through special shoes.
