Transformation of a former supermarket into a multi-purpose hall
The initial situation is symptomatically trivial: a supermarket built in 1983, located on the outskirts of Châteaulin, a town in Brittany, between pavilions and small collective dwellings, is abandoned due to a lack of customers. Made available to local associations, its new users (about a hundred associations) will soon find great freedom in this volume: forums, concerts, shows, garage sales, fairs, etc... without this structure ever really being adapted to its new function, becoming increasingly uncomfortable to use over the years.

 

The numerous stakes of this adaptive reuse are above all part of an economic and functional logic. Here the word architecture corresponds to a series of elementary, strategic and strictly necessary decisions. The original volumetry is simplified by the demolition of its protuberances and canopies. Only a new small addition will be made to signify the entrance. The objective is to not pretend to be anything other than an old supermarket, while ensuring the flexibility and comfort of use worthy of a multifunctional space. A new skin softens the contact with the landscape, spaces are reorganized, program elements are added.

 

Material Used :
1. JORISIDE: Aluminium corrugated cladding
2. SINIAT: Wood wool acoustic panels
3. SIKA: Resin flooring
