High School Sports Ground, Nyon, Switzerland
A modern ball catching net for Nyon
The ground was completely enclosed with sleeveless Webnet that resembles the basketball courts of American urban parks. For the architects, it was of prime importance to realise a transparent structure which is exactly what the sleeveless Webnet with its high translucency achieves. The neighbours living in the quarter next to the school continue to enjoy a quiet calm thanks to Webnet’s ability to absorb shocks without creating any noise. This also minimises conflicts between playing kids and neighbours.
