It’s hard to miss the brand new sports complex De Altis for athletes visiting the venue for a match. Contrast is the keyword in the design of this building, which combines sports, catering and outdoor activities. The most striking feature is the gold and bronze coloured facade, created with Rockpanel cladding. The olive branch from the Rijswijk logo is milled into the cladding, and for an even more extraordinary effect it’s illuminated in the evening. 

Building in a sustainable way 

Commissioned by the municipality of Rijswijk, project development agency OLCO realized the new sustainable, multifunctional and future-proof sports complex De Altis in Rijswijk. From a great distance it is immediately noticeable that one of the two sports halls stands on a pedestal of about three meters above ground level. OLCO director Mark Westra explains: “The municipality wanted to increase the quality of the environment, but also had a strict parking standard. We have therefore lifted one hall off the ground and created parking space below.”
