Multifunctional Hall in France

Multifunctional Hall in France

Project Description

On a territorial scale, this building evokes agricultural archetypes, sometimes isolated within broad landscapes, and reinterprets their materiality: steel and wood. The multifunctional hall becomes a new landmark, leading the development of the south of the town. The design of the building is governed by three major aspects: implementation according to bioclimatic principles and defined by the passage of the sun, offering wide views of the Vosges, and organising equipment to mitigate noise disturbance.

The compact volume improves the thermal performance of the building. The whole envelope (covering and walls) is made out of zinc, a refined and sober skin that is visible below the road. In the south, the main hall opens itself up to the Vosges mountains, extending the interior space to the outside landscape.
