About the project
Sam Eyde at Myra and Arendal Sports Centre is Aust-Agder’s largest upper secondary school. It covers 18,000 m2 and has facilities for more than 1,300 pupils and staff. Arendal sports ground and multi-purpose hall are close by.
PORTO benches for wall tops and URBAN litter bins were chosen for the school’s outdoor area. VROOM benches, tables and litter bins were chosen for Arendal sports centre. Colour RAL 7022 Umbra grey.
The architects describe the function of the outdoor area as follows: With this site – which is characterised by large dimensions – importance was attached to creating good, safe meeting places, mainly around the entrances. Active use was also made of terrain and vegetation to achieve defined and social outdoor spaces. An eating area and steps with a view of the activity and skate zones were created outside the main entrance – based on the ‘see and be seen’ principle.
