The site is changing, so we chose a sculptural building. The building envelope is made of perforated or solid clothing and this material is also on the roof, « the fifth façade ». Le Lac center regroups different poles, which can also work autonomously.

The hall is visible from the street and is a meeting and animation place, it's a fully clear area, open to the esplanade. It benefits from natural light and high ceiling and distributes every pole.It's an attractive and user-friendly place with several activities (exhibition, information, cafeteria, choir, and cybercafé).

The center has become a central place for local residents, who meet up over a cup of coffee in the hall. Children go there to play on the esplanade, to do some activities in the center or to share an afternoon snack, it's an intergenerational, cultural and educational place.
