The Humboldt University (HU) Berlin and the Charité University Medical
Faculty Berlin found the Center of Sports Science and Sports Medicine
Berlin (CSSB). The CSSB is the only interdisciplinary establishment for
sports science and sports medicine in germany.
The CSSB attends to fundamental research and development as well as
appliance and teaching. While studying analysis, prevention and training
or regeneration and rehabilitation the CSSB stands for interdisziplinary
research in an excellent level. Humanities, natural sciences and medicine
associate here in direct synergy.
The research sports hall of HU ist the new core of the applied sports
research of the CSSB. The project financed only by an economic stimulus package was handed over to the operator, the Center of Sports Science and Sports Medicine Berlin (CSSB), in 2011. The faculty researches many facets of general and high-performance sports. Research objective is the improvement of traning procedures to an optimum. In addition to a triplesized sports hall, the research facility also contains specifically equipped wareas such as rooms for regeneration, rehabilitation, exercise, gymnastics and dance.
The highly sensitive measuring and camera technology in every section of the hall requires heavy demands on low-vibration construction,
soundproofing, colouring and surface.
The horizontal arrangement of the solitary structure and the facade gives
information on the interior spatial relation and structures the new
building’s mass. An at-grade access, which leads straightfoward to the
user area was the permise in the organisation. The transparent facade on
the ground floor gives the visitors an insight into the internal procedure.
The locker rooms, the multi-media room and the area of research are
reachable through the foyer. The sport area is located on the upper floor.
The first floor receives a prefabricated concrete facade, that stands in
contrast to the transparent ground floor. By applying high-efficient
technology, triple glazing and highly insulated components, the energy
demand is minimised to passive house standard.
