Boulder hall Memmingen
Reduced to a clear design language and few materials such as exposed concrete, wood and steel, the space is skillfully staged. The exposed concrete walls and ceilings stand as a metaphor for the "rock". Thus, the exposed concrete façade at the entrance made of core-insulated semi-precast elements appears high, massive and heavy. The wood of the office symbolizes the "huts" that mountain people build for protection in the harsh mountain environment. The wooden slats with three different profile depths create a "slightly swinging" facade and the overall appearance is warm and homey. The wooden walls implement the ecological attitude of the DAV: Solid wood walls and ceiling elements made of untreated local wood, some of it from the Memmingen forest, were nailed together here without glue and insulated with wood fiber boards.
Thermal walls, hollow walls and filigree slab elements from CONCRETE Rudolph GmbH were used for the project, and the columns of the bouldering hall were produced as precast concrete columns with molded foundation bases. In general, a construction method with prefabricated and semi-prefabricated elements was chosen in order to ensure an economical as well as precise execution. Where use permits, the floor surfaces are finished with exposed concrete screed and coated with a colorless finish.
Reduced to very few materials such as exposed concrete, wood and steel, the building creates a valuable framework for the sport. Deliberately little color, only the spot color blue from the logo is found in various places skillfully set again.
