Normier + Postec : Stade Max-Roussié

In the 17th arrondissement of Paris, new sports equipment is emerging. In an environment made of hard constructions and concrete, the architects Normier + Postec, in charge of the project, propose a delicate building clad with wood. A culture shock that pays off.

The whole area of ​​680 square meters SCHON includes the construction of changing rooms, a clubhouse and a weight room. Located in the heart of an existing sports complex where raw concrete reigns supreme, the Normier + Postec project takes a different direction and focuses on a soft and voluptuous geometry and a natural coating. A taste for the form which is manifested in particular at the entrance thanks to the removal of the cladding which then seems to accompany the sportsmen inside the structure.

Sober and elegant, the curved facade is clad in lamellar Douglas laminate glued. A covering that continues on the roof, forming a structure on which nets stop the flying balls, the roof being decorated with a handball field. An addition to the most graphic blue composition, bringing the touch of lightness in a rather discreet set. A bench, also designed in Douglas, completes the ground and extends the wooden cladding to create a set of pleasant seats.

A project against the current.
