Fostering inclusion, wellbeing and fitness, Grimshaw Architects’ design for Al Farjan Recreational Sports Facilities propounds a distinct style quotient alongside thoughtful design...

Won through a competition by the Qatar Olympic Committee, Grimshaw Architects’ approach to the “community sports facility and playground with a twofold mission: enrich the social activities of the neighbourhood and promote the culture of sport to the public”, is inclusive, with the aim to promote sports awareness and enhance the popularity of different types of sports.

The multipurpose sports venue encompasses requisite sports fields, an outdoor children’s playground, public realm landscaping and amenities, and the like; the concept and design recognizing that the responsibilities of this project are far reaching and profoundly important.

With playgrounds as the highly accessible, informal public space for young people, families and sporting enthusiasts alike,  various elements of the facility are centered on the social hub, a cafĂ© and children’s playground with elegant fabric canopies radiating outward to provide cover and shade.

Subtle topography allows for changing views as one navigates the site and allows for the integration of park and sporting elements into the undulating landscape without encroaching on the space required for regular playing fields.
