The completion in 2012 of the Fontys School of Sport Studies at Eindhoven’s Genneper Parks was a first step in turning the parks into a 'sports estate'. Mecanoo’s design creates an important link in the network of sport accommodations and facilities in Genneper Parks.
2200 students and teachers make daily use of sports facilities in their own building, including the National Swimming Centre, the Tongelreep and the Indoor Sports Centre. Fontys School of Sport Studies, with state of the art sports facilities and a comprehensive sustainability concept, houses three curricula which were previously spread over locations in Sittard and Tilburg.
