PSBA and INOONI create canoe-like canoeing centre

By Stu Robarts    07 Jan 2020
The centre is situated on the Netta River / Bartosz Dworski

Przemysław Sokołowski Biuro Architektoniczne (PSBA) and INOONI have completed a canoeing centre in Augustow, Poland, with a wooden angular form that is reminiscent of the canoes it houses.

The studios were awarded the project after winning a design competition in 2016 and were briefed to create the centre itself, as well as neighbouring recreational areas including a multifunctional sports field, a bike track, a playground and public spaces.

Located on the Netta River, the canoeing centre comprises a hub building, which is set back slightly from the water's edge, and a hangar for storing boats that straddles the river and the riverbank.

The hub was designed as a base from which to run training, club meetings, competitions and events, with amenities including a training facility, changing rooms, a gym with views of the river a club room and a canoe and equipment store.

The hub's edges are folded down along two of its planes, creating covered canopies for entrances and exits, as well as contributing to its eye-catching angular form. Its green, flat roof also slopes slightly downwards along its length.

The hangar structure, meanwhile, incorporates garage-like entrances from the river, storage space for motorboats, a jetty and a rooftop observation deck on which visitors can sit and watch activity on the water.

Both buildings are finished with Siberian larch, giving a natural aesthetic that fits with the surrounding landscape, while the interiors have been kept minimalistic and functional.
