Project description: A new sports facility was arranged in an L-shape at the south-eastern corner of the stadium. It consists of two registers, two elements that attract and meet without touching.
A first element, anchored to the ground, constitutes the base of the building and integrates the entire program. The second element, suspended, makes up the roof and canopy of the facility.
The two registers are separated from each other by a partially glazed fault that illuminates the various spaces and flares out at the level of the multipurpose room.
A new grandstand is treated as an origami sculpture in concrete integrating vegetated embankments. A planted strip located along the site boundary provides an acoustic barrier and enhances the view from the neighboring plots.
A translucent polycarbonate wall, placed between the last row of stands and the vegetated strip, allows the stand to be isolated while promoting natural lighting of the stands.
