Text description provided by the architects. The project is characterized by the complex’s activities (Judo, Boxing, Body/fitness) highlighted by volumetries draped by wood or polycarbonate. The facades are set against the unifying concrete element.

The North polycarbonate facade becomes integrated into the park, without touching it. It is printed by vegetable images that offers a reflection of the valley of Drouette’s trees. Both entities, training rooms and bodyfitness rooms, seem to levitate onto this artificial vegetation.

The use of materials such as the wood (heir of the local constructions), concrete, glass and printed polycarbonate allow an integration in a natural site, where the vegetation seems, and has to dominate.
