The magnificent Allerød Clubhouse in Denmark combines two functions in one modern design. Both a social clubhouse and a grandstand, this energy efficient design created by Christensen & co was born from a collaboration with Jönsson (contractor) and Your Jørgensen Council, and offers club members and visitors a comfortable sleek space with fantastic views for watching football matches. Its sloping roof design combines solar panels, luscious green areas and double-glazing together with long lasting materials that drastically cut the building's energy footprint.
Not your average clubhouse, this modern facility in the Danish municipality of Allerød has two differentiated faces. The entrance side of the building is shielded against the elements and features only a few windows for light and cross ventilation. On the brighter side, the clubhouse opens up to the field and incorporates solar panels, patches of green roof and weatherproof materials.
With an area of 18,300 square-foot, Christensen & co’s A-framed design may be a bit too ambitious for a football club. However, its glazed, airy and flexible facilities offer members and visitors an ideal space for meeting people, enjoying the views and watching the matches. Thanks to this comfortable design, the Allerød Clubhouse has become more than just a football club as it offers people a vibrant space for socializing too.
