Ørestad Street Hall

Ørestad Streethal is an architectural gem with lots of potential

There is almost no limits on sport activities to throw yourself into in this 1,700 square metre sports centre placed in Ørestaden, the southern part of Copenhagen. But it is not just the sporting facilities that draw people here. The actual building itself also has an impressive architectural appearance and is designed by Nord Architects in corporation with locals.

The sports centre is the smallest in an area of tall buildings, but never the less its appearance still catches the eye. The building has a wooden look, is composed by five pentagonal parts and has windows all around, so that it connects the indoor and outdoor activities. It is definitely worth the short train ride to Ørestaden, and while you are here, you should take a walk around and enjoy the beautiful area. Remember to visit 8TALLET (8 House) as well - yet another architectural masterpiece.

The building has received its name Streethal (street centre) because it is for both inside and outside activities. The centre is unmanned but can be used all round the clock, 24 hours a day by anyone from institutions, groups, unions and private individuals.
