Rehabilitation leisure center of Fontaine de Vaucluse (84)


1800 m2

Fontaine de Vaucluse Provence

2022

The project is an extension of the current building (former spinning mill) and the renovation of it.
The Departmental Outdoor and Leisure Center (CDPAL) of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, located at the southwest entrance to the town, is part of a narrow strip of land between an arm of River La Sorgue to the north and the D24 and the wooded hills to the south.
The project will reveal the site by developing the views towards the River Sorgue, by revegetating the surroundings and the parking lot, by building an extension that blends into the landscape with delicacy and humility (wood cladding and joinery, green roof, etc.)
The objective of the project is to rehabilitate the existing one more in line with current standards (disabled people, kitchen, thermal, comfort) and to improve the functioning of the center by creating an extension.
