The new building offers specific rooms for various types of sport. Each room allows the practicing of activities in optimal conditions – natural day lighting, ventilation and acoustic treatment.
The ground floor façade designs a silk screen glass base – expressing its will to be a showcase for sport.
The different activities are visible from the pathway; the landscape design announces the presence of sport. Red lines on the floor reminds of the track for athletics.
The volume put on the base is covered with a copper skin and alternates perforated panels with opaque ones. The glass covered zones are covered with perforated metal shutters.
The façade is animated by the rhythm in the variation of transparency. The functioning of the equipment is optimized. The unique entrance allows a central distribution of the different levels. The connections between the different rooms are short and clearly distributed.
