Danish architecture firm CEBRA teamed up with Glifberg+Lykke to design a multi-use park that boasts a 4,500-square-meter area for skating, parkour, boulder climbing, canoe polo and other recreational activities. StreetDome features open playgrounds and meeting places and is meant to become a cultural hub for the city of Haderslev in Denmark.
The project is part of an initiative to create a new urban space for recreation, led by the chairman of the SkateCity association Morten Hansen. CEBRA and Glifberg+Lykke designed a 1,500-square-meter dome based on CEBRA’s igloo hall concept. Spanning over 40 meters, the roof covers a large open space which can be used for various types of sports such as skateboarding, boulder climbing and street basketball.
The dome comprises a large performance platform with seating and blends seamlessly into the landscape. It incorporates banks, stairs and slopes that flow into the floor and create a continuous environment. The design uses similar technology of CEBRA’s previous projects, including low-cost and lightweight sports halls. It uses cheaper, off-the-shelf components often used in industrial buildings and warehouses.
