archi5 et Tecnova Architecture : Complexe sportif La Fontaine

What is this building with copper tints installed in the district of La Fontaine in Antony (92)? Fruit of the collaboration of the agencies archi5 and Tecnova Architecture, the faceted sports complex stands out in a landscape located between plant heritage and vertical accommodation.

An organic silhouette, a theatrical coating: more than a new gymnasium, the 5 200 square meters building acts as a marker, a signage element, in the district of La Fontaine in Antony which is currently the subject of a new urban impulse. Attracting the eyes of passers-by and other curious, the fractured monolith is closer to the large gold nugget than to the classic gym.


This Unidentified Architectural Object is part of the park of the area as well as in a residential area consisting of housing bars of the 1970 years. A context in which the whole stands out while having fun with the peculiarities of its environment. Coated with a skin made of an alloy of copper, aluminum and tin, the gym breaks with the towers of its site, because of its horizontality and its many facets.
Inside, the designers favor natural materials: walls covered with wooden strips, stretch ceilings and natural lighting allow the sportsmen of the region to practice a physical activity in an ideal frame. Indeed, a crossing fault opens on the valley and offers exceptional views to users while separating the two poles of the complex. An attraction of the masters for transparency which is also reflected in many breakthroughs. A semi-mezzanine completes the whole, breaking up the generous volumes and recalling the marked geometry of the envelope.

There will be sport at Antony!
