Architectural project of a sports and shooting stand in Kolpino, near St. Petersburg. The club is intended for professional shooting sports, competitions (including international ones), as well as for family recreation. The project is supposed to divide the site into three main functional zones:
- Entrance – with parking for 52 cars and utility area.
- Sports with spectators.
Here, athletes perform tasks (shooting at moving targets (plates) towards the forest belt), formations and awards are also held here. Spectators are placed under a light-transmitting canopy.
- Recreation area with gazebos and a children’s shooting range is oriented to the south.
In the most remote place from the noise – 3 pavilions with separate courtyards facing the pond, for companies of 5-7 people. All of them are connected by a covered gallery that leads to the club house. On the opposite side there is a playground with a shooting range, visually controlled by the parents from the club. In warm weather, trainings and seminars can be held in the green amphitheater.
One of the main tasks of the project – the creation of the most comfortable and weather-independent space – was solved by organizing covered light-transparent galleries penetrating and connecting the entire stand area. For example, leaving the car, a person can go under a canopy to any point of the site, always remaining protected from rain and snow. Structurally, the covering of the galleries is supported by supports made of wood and metal, additionally pulled together with cables.
