Rowing Centre In Bled | MultiPlan arhitekti

• January 26, 2011

In Bled – Slovenia, this newly renovated rowing centre designed by MultiPlan arhitekti is recently completed and it will be used to host the World Rowing Championships this year. The building is well integrated into the sloping site, while providing a huge viewing platform and seating area following the terrain down the slope.

Viewing platforms belong to a group of utility buildings, where the function primarily characterizes the appearance. Given the fact that in the context of the entire rowing centre the stands are placed directly on the lake shore, an upgrade of the formal design into the intertwining of built and natural is the key.

Bled is considered one of the most important and beautiful scenes of the largest rowing events. In 2011, it will also host the World Rowing Championships, where spectators will cheer for the rowers from new stands in the finish line area. The renovation of the rowing centre was funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
