Everything starts with a walk, a stroll in the city center of Vertou with its steepness and prospects. The project is an extension of this geography, a rebuild soil that as to turn around and form the building, a man-made geography. The equipment is a “fun machine” to see and receive.
The basin and the court, a true outdoor room of the building, which welcome visitors entering this “Golden Cream” stone monolith. Roof is evocating Vertou’s roofs. Then the user find a bright, pure interior, staged by plays of boxes wich contains program and large frames opening on the landscape of Vertou.
