Mehrzweckturnhalle Zentrum, Wetzikon
The spatial layout and the materials chosen for the new multi-purpose hall at Wetzikon’s central secondary school are designed for multifaceted and flexible use: for teaching classes as well as for sport and community events.
The signage, painted directly on the wall surface, borrows the colour palette of the architecture and, with its ornamental style, bestows a festive atmosphere. The lettering is, however, articulate and robust enough for the academic and sporting context.
Life-sized letters were used to designate the three-part hall. The crisp, graphic serifs in the font chosen – “Stanley” (Ludovic Balland and Yoann Minet) – are shown to particular advantage.
In addition to the hall, the schoolhouse “Egg” was expanded, renovated und signage installed.
