From the architect. Build in the footprint of an existing wine warehouse, the sport hall fits in the characteristic 'lanieres' (long shaped plots) of the Chartrons neighborhood in Bordeaux, France.

The project gives some of its little available ground back to the public space. The long facade becomes the primary one, the entry, a passage and a waiting space. The street facade blends in with the existing neighbor building, giving visual priority to the new main facade.

The closed buildings is covered with a second skin of wood, unifying the facade and filtering the light when needed. That skin folds up over a passage going from the street to the river quays. Inside, different skylights provide for proper light in the different parts of the building.
