Kau Gymnasium by URA Architects located Brussels, Belgium. URA is a design studio located in Brussels working within varied scales and functions, searching for universal basic typologies. 
Presented here is a sports hall blended into the natural environment of Brussels, Belgium. This simple building contains many contradictions, creating a rich spectrum of visual and tactical experiences. Open and closed, trees and slope, materiality, and transparency consist of a coherent whole arising from the natural slope.  “The facade shows the duality of the context: a strong, closed concrete wall on the one side and a wooden structure with a black steel plate-cladded facade on the other side. These two facades meet in the perspective of the stage-stair. The surrounding trees are seen from different perspectives,” said the head designers, Yves Malysse and Kiki Verbeeck.
