Global design of the facility, including the the sport rooms fit-out, functional organisation of the changing rooms, showers, toilets, administrative offices and technical service-rooms.


The perception of the built volume is softened by an extended west screen, made of slatted timber. The complex is composed of 5 levels.

The East-West distribution axis organises the circulation and provides a centre of gravity to the project. The various parts are centred around one single distribution spine, which optimises the length of the corridors (and surveillance).
