The point is to create an efficient tool as for the building’s use as well as for the surrounding area, friendly, enjoyable, serene and identifiable.
The establishment site is characterized by horizontality; this vast dominant plateau immerses the user in the scenery. The project interprets and synthesizes the characteristics of the place and programmatic datum. Resulting two fundamental elements: the base and the volume-signal.



Major points of this project:
– The pragmatic management of the site, considering solar exposition, uses, access and prevailing winds.
– Natural light is the most valuable material in a sports centre, it is this that gives to the sports complex its particularity and contributes to its comfort. A double wrapping treatment, diffusing inside (polycarbonate) and filtering outside (net), allows a natural light management and frees from artificial lighting.
– Opening the building towards the scenery in all orientations. Every room benefits from large gaps on the outside; on sports facilities, balcony towards the East for the gymnastics room and towards the city for the tennis table room.
– Accessibility is allowed by a fluctuated floor. It could be an hand-rail, an embankment, a bench, a conch, or something other which is always part of a continual and fluent movement.
– The Inertia. The base brings a real integration into the surrounding area and increases the building’s inertia.
