In order to contrast with the opaque, sequenced look of the existing gymnasium, the new Multisport Hall is imagined as a gentle continuity of it. The refined and crystalline hall space emerges from a concrete low register that integrates the secondary premises.
A glulam structure coated with a metal cladding is woven around the translucent polycarbonate box which makes up the volume of the hall. This process is used to give a look that is both simple and refined, but also dynamic, thanks to the design of the structure.
Polycarbonate facades, with their reflective character, allow the building to constantly evolve. Changes in light during the day generate changing colors, moving reflections and a dynamic character.
The glulam structure gives the Multisport Hall a warm ambience. Vertical beams extend to the ceiling by the laying of wooden trim of the same of material, which is attached to the rafters.
