Ravaged by a fire three years ago, the sports hall of the town of Langueux (22) is reborn from its ashes thanks to the intervention of the architects from the Nunc Architects Brittany agency. Zoom on an ecologically and environmentally exemplary glass case.

Deprived of real equipment dedicated to sports since December 2015, the inhabitants of the Breton town of Langueux are now seeing their daily lives change. Under the leadership of the local agency Nunc, this is a new building all in glass and clad wood that now welcomes the most athletic residents!

Including new rooms, association premises and a physical preparation area, this complex is intended for associations as well as schools and municipal services. The whole of 2 square meters has two volumes: one facing north, 460 meters high, housing the great hall, and a second storey, at the edge of the street and dug in the west corner to form a large sheltered forecourt through which users enter the enclosure.

The concrete structure is covered with wooden rods, a material that is also found in the superstructure. The large sports hall, characterized by the presence of a glass facade of 44x12 meters, is thus crossed by glued laminated beams 30 meters long. The very large openings allow the staging of sports activities, giving the space the impression of being outside.

Very committed to an environmental approach and this for years, the town of Langueux required healthy equipment, which would set an example in the built landscape of the region. Thus, the project is the only sports complex selected within the framework of the OBEC program (Objectif Bâtiments Énergie Carbonne) of ADEME and can also boast of being the winner of the regional call for projects "efficient building".

A building that does good to the town and to the planet!
