Atelier Féret & Frechon : Maison des sports et des associations

Located in the popular district of the Maison Rouge de Louviers (27), the Maison des Sports et des Associations breathes new life into a somewhat neglected sector. Signed Atelier Féret & Frechon, the complex strongly signals its presence thanks to marked architectural choices.

Conceived in a larger project of revaluation of the district of the Maison Rouge de Louviers, the whole imagined by Atelier Féret & Frechon offers to the associations of the commune various premises and external arrangements allowing this part of the city to be revitalized by the different activities that can be offered. Added to this, the program also includes the construction of a bodybuilding and fitness club supplementing the offer of the already existing Maxime Marchant sports complex.


The project takes place near the Mail Carrigton, a long green promenade, a high school and a future multimodal exchange pole, which will eventually complete the activity offer of the district. The premises are installed on a square plan of 36x36 meters and are organized so that each space can benefit from the outdoor light and views of the green environment. A practical arrangement which also makes it possible to preserve the planted spaces of the site, formerly occupied by the municipal swimming pool.

Resting on a concrete structure, the facades are designed from different cladding - wood, zinc pigmented with brown, gold anodized aluminum etc. -, whose shades of neutral colors refer to the vernacular architecture of the district mixing bricks, rubble stone, slates and terracotta tiles. The project includes two urban façades, the differences in levels of which punctuate the project in a square plan. The lowest, located to the south, is extended by a covered hall aligned under the trees of the mall when the other “Stages the rising volumes of sports and festive halls above a graphic sign”, underline the architects.
Thanks to a photovoltaic installation, the project benefits from the Bepos Effinergie 2017 label, an essential point for the city which has pursued a policy of sustainable development for many years.

Inside, the project managers have opted for wood versions, energized by the presence of a deep lagoon blue and gold signage. The numerous side and overhead openings ensure that the different rooms are bathed in natural and diffused light throughout the day.

There will be sport in Louviers!
