The Pajol Sports Centre is a new facility in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. Arranged over three levels, the building is formed of two opaque volumes at lower ground and upper levels, which sandwich a transparent public space at entry level.

The lower ground level accommodates the martial arts and fitness centres. The 47 by 24 metre sports hall is located on the upper level to take advantage of even daylighting via a series of north facing sculpted roof lights. On the entry level, the building opens onto a large terrace along the eastern façade.
