Uram极限公园位于俄罗斯喀山,是欧洲最大的极限公园。2020年夏季,公园的室内运动中心已经由Legato Architects完成建造。KOSMOS事务所受邀与Legato共同完成大楼的整体设计。

The largest extreme park in Europe opens in Kazan. The new indoor sports center stands in the open part of the extreme all-season park that was already completed in summer 2020 by Legato Architects. Legato, the creators of the open extreme park Uram, invited KOSMOS Architects to work together on the building of the sports center.

Uram (means “street“ in Tatar) is the center of street youth culture, which combines sports and educational, social and cultural functions under one roof. The center with an area of almost 8 000 square meters hosts on two floors extreme sport zones (air park, street plaza, concrete bowl and skate house) and cultural spaces open to everyone.

The facade of the Uram Street Culture Center consists of 2 parts, performing on different scales. The upper volume is a minimalistic rectangular block, faced with brushed stainless steel, performs on an urban scale. Visible from the opposite side of the Kazanka River, the abstract volume reflects the sun or grey sky and changes depending on the weather conditions. It works as an urban landmark. The upper minimalistic volume rests on several flamboyant concrete hills that develop the formal expression of an outdoor extreme park. The hills will organize a lecture hall, a playground and continue sports functions. Despite the fact that the hills of the facade are still to appear, the indoor part of Uram has already been completed.

室内部分 | Interior


The concept of the building’s interior is based on exposure of simple street and industrial materials, inexpensive and practical: concrete, sheet metal, reinforced glass, plywood, drywall, masonry materials. The natural color of all these materials varies in shades of gray. To give an identity to the space and to create a comfortable navigation in the sports center, an additional bright, signal color – Volt (bright green-yellow) has been introduced into the design of the interior space. This color is most noticeable to the human eye and therefore is so actively used in street and road navigation to ensure safety. The bright color denotes the most important areas in the building and guides visitors on the way to go. Reception, information board, entrances on the escape route are always highlighted in bright color and immediately noticeable in the interior. In addition, the contrasting color allows you to form an alternative geometry of the space.

Each area of ​​the sports center has its own unique look, created by one basic technique or material.
In the airpark, the main material is plywood, which creates the total space of the “plywood ocean”.
In the lecture hall, the space is formed with the help of a “cloud of points” – suspended lamps that form an alternative geometry of the space.
Bowl’s main material is concrete; and the interior of the main inner street is defined by a spatial grid of lamps and wall frame profiles.
