This aquatic complex is located close to Saint-Brice-en Cogles ‘s downtown, in a former agricultural area. The building aims to work on two aspects :
It is packed with colored strips (perforated metal and concrete), the resurgence of the agricultural past (agricultural furrows). In the pool hall these lines come in large awnings expressing the playful spirit and resort program. The complex express lines that extend into outside agricultural sunscreen next to interior beach.
It is a compact building divided into two distinct zones : in the north with an entity consisting of a multipurpose room, locker rooms, technical features, and south basins Hall.
The building’s design tends to work with high environmental quality. In addition to its compactness, its orientation and shading, it has features that ensure optimum management of energy (exterior insulation, wood heating, ventilation, heated floors …)
The equipment takes place subtly into the landscape, in its historic context and opens fully to the outside.
