The new facility, designed to accommodate new changing rooms, gymnasium, cafe, restaurant and social club, organizes and characterizes the whole complex. The result is an elongated prism from which a body emerges pointing towards the Olympic Stadium and rugby fields, thus generating an intimate square, a meeting point for athletes and visitors.
We seek certain homogeneity and silence in the combination of materials: gray GRC panels, galvanized steel, prefab concrete and anodized aluminum, offer a monolithic appearance, nevertheless reacting differently to natural light. Thus the building will subtly render changes during the day, offering a friendly and serene presence in the garden.
The whole project is coordinated from a single modulation. The intention is to convey some idea of simplicity in construction, while generating an organic reading of the building that allows each part to refer to an overall view.
