Sportcenter Heuried – Signage

Role: Part Projectlead, Concept & Design, Execution

Located in a residential Zurich neigh­bourhood, a new indoor ice rink is being added to the existing outdoor swimming pool and outdoor ice rink Heuried. The signage echoes the materials of the archi­tecture, whether smooth concrete wall or ribbed wooden facade.

     The large lettering on the facade marks the building on the street-side, depending on the angle, the vertical slats of the facade causes the letters to shift. At dusk, the space between the letters begins to glow, making the sports centre visible by night.

     Metal signage hangs from the protruding timber roof, guiding visitors to the swimming pools and changing rooms as well as designating the restaurant in the upper storey.

 

Our involvement included:

  • entire signage concept and execution

  • Including developing a pictogram set
