From the architect. The project establish between a listed wooded area on the side of the dune and a sports plate, in continuation of an existing gymnasium. The aim is to propose a simple wooden volume articulating to the existing thanks to the implementation of a patio.

This simple wooden volume is a very bright room thanks to "gills" on all its length. Gills allow a beautiful natural light and are guarantors for the identity of the room. At the end of the team sports area, the back of the stage, receives a climbing wall, which animates the gymnasium.

So structured, the project creates a bright piece of wood keeping the link by its transparency between the dune and its wood with the sports plate. Readable and generous, it guarantees a real pleasure of use to his occupants.
