From the architect. The project is built on a site strongly characterized by the horizontality of soccer fields.

It is a real horizon landscape which allows seeing far, but also to be seen. The project interprets this character by proposing two principles: the entresol and the signal volume.

The entresol is a constructed base which includes all auxiliary spaces of the room in a North-south movement of lawn and green banks. On the East of this base, the public Hall is linked to the parking lot and on the west to the technical zones and the storages.

Above these embedded spaces, the sports room is revealed as a faceted prism which separates from the ground.This volume comprises the landscape in which it appears to float. It is covered with a uniform perforated  stitch which makes it abstract and allows natural light to filter inside.

Between the two, between the base and the metal volume, wide windows bring in the spectators  relationship with the surrounding landscape.
