DESCRIPTION
 
The Wave and the Whirlwind
NIO architecten ZEP Leisure Park MiddelburgThe building for the ZEP Leisure Park is based on Zeeland’s two most vital natural elements: wind and water. The image that the building evokes is that of a dance between a wave and a whirlwind. The wave is the horizontal binding theme for the events park, the whirlwind is the twenty-five metre high tower that can be seen from afar and that can be climbed by the daredevil.

NIO architecten ZEP Leisure Park MiddelburgWith that the building sets the tone: not only is it embedded in Zeeland’s nature, but it also refers to adventure, excitement, discovery and surprise. It is an adventurous building in which all kinds of things can be experienced, from the most intimate moment of relaxation to the wildest impressions. Everybody has something to look for here.

For this leisure park we looked for real experiences. The trees that border the car park and that grow on the square, are real and not made of plastic. From the ZEP-tower kids can actually float to the ground, they do not play in a virtual image. The things that are there to see, to do and to buy relate to physical, often sporty activities: skating, sailing, climbing, biking, working out, dancing and last but not least playing soccer. Of these real experiences the building wants to be a continuation, an experience in the form of wind and water.
