Nike Box MSK – Gorky Park

The “Nike Box MSK” in Gorky Park (Moscow) is a free innovative cultural and sports centre that is open all year round. The sports centre includes a  modern football and basketball courts, a functional platform for yoga, the Nike Training and Running Club bases, equipped with all the necessary infrastructure – changing rooms, showers and left-luggage offices for storing things.

The facade, with its three-dimensional metal lattice, acts as a membrane between the interior and the park. The transparent structure of the pavilion makes all rooms, even the MEP room, visible from the streets. The canopy of the external envelope are designed taking into account the dendrological map of the built-up territory, since all the canopy structures have voids in places, where the trees intersect these structures.
