Options: at the De Stuit or Swimfun gym
There are four options at De Stuit Gym. More than half of the sports hall consists of the gymnastics hall. The rest of the space could be used for the new lively venue, this is the first option. It is also proposed to give the gymnastic hall a different location in the sports hall, so that the space in front of the effervescent hall can become more integrated.
The third plan is to move the gym to a new buildable room in Swimfun. Another option is to demolish the De Stuit sports hall and erect a new building there for all functions.
A special project group has been working for some time in collaboration with associations to develop a concrete plan of the lively place, where there should be room for all associations. At the beginning of 2020, a support survey was carried out with the question of the needs of associations. Among other things, it turned out that a total of around 1,650 square meters is needed to accommodate all organizations: from theater and music associations to coffee clubs or the bridge club.
“We are looking for a place where people can meet and practice their hobby, a place where the connection is felt, which does not exist now,” says Tjitske Stegenga of the project group.
