Alterations and extension works at the Heuried Sports Centre in Zurich took two years. It opened again in autumn 2017 with a new ice sports hall. The centre’s open-air swimming pools will be available in time for the 2018 season. 

In the light of structural and operational problems, the city council issued an architectural competition for the refurbishment and upgrading of the original open-air facility with its swimming pool and two outdoor ice-skating rinks built in 1964 to a design by Fritz Schwarz and Hans Litz. The winning entry by locally based architects EM2N involved refurbishing the sports centre and adding an all-year-round ice sports hall.
